HCA will host the first annual Apalach Chalk Art Festival at Riverfront Park.

Each participant will pay $5 for a bundle of chalk and a square of the sidewalk, up to 3 squares may be purchased but only 1 bundle of chalk will be given. Participants will be allowed to bring their own chalk and supplies such as spray bottles, towels, etc. to use to create their artwork.
