Street Painting: A Lake Worth Tradition

Sunday afternoon I headed to downtown Lake Worth for the second day of the annual Street Painting Festival. In its nineteenth year, the festival included more than 650 artists, both local and from across the country, in teams of two to four who drew 254 chalk drawings on Lake and Lucerne avenues. The festival began in 1995 and is conducted by the nonprofit, Street Painting Festival Inc.

It was my first time attending, and I really enjoyed it. Along with the beautiful creations of art were musical performances, food vendors and an opportunity to experience the quaint shops and restaurants the area has to offer.
