City's first chalk art festival planned for next weekend
Jennifer Gray uses chalk to create a drawing of a cow on the sidewalk outside Batavia city Hall this afternoon. Gray was drawing to help promote the city's first Sidewalk Painting Festival this weekend. The event starts next Friday and will run concurrently Saturday with Summer in the City. So far, 15 artists have signed up and as many as 15 more are expected to register when they show up Friday. The artists will use chalk to transform the sidewalks around City Hall. The event is sponsored by Vibrant Batavia.
CORRECTION: Added "next" in front of Friday. The event is next weekend, not this weekend.
