Decorate the City Commons at the Chalk Walk
Arts in Strongsville is calling all kids for the annual event
Kids 5-18 can use chalk to decorate the walkway in front of the police station and compete for prizes.
The event is free and runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with judging from 2-4 p.m.
New this year are categories for families and special needs.
If it rains, participants should meet at the Ehrnfelt Recreation Center, 18100 Royalton Rd.
Prizes will be awarded for the best-designed squares in each age group (5-6, 7-9, 10-12, 13-15 and 16-18) and also for the best family category and the best special needs category.
A spot will be set up for toddlers under 5 who would like to draw. They will not be judged. A parent must be present at all times during the contest for all elementary-age students. Chalk will be provided to all children. No other chalk can be used as it may stain the concrete.
Registration starts at 9 a.m., but advance sign-ups are recommended to guarantee a spot. For more information, contact Amy McEntee at email@example.com or 440-238-6877, or Sandy Moir at firstname.lastname@example.org, 440-781-0184.
Water can be purchased at this event. Lawn chairs are suggested. Donation of a canned good for the Strongsville Food Bank would be appreciated.
