This wonderful Annual Street Painting Festival in Lake Worth is an event to visit twice! Come on Saturday and watch as the art starts on the asphalt then return on Sunday to see the finished projects. This is one of the largest chalk art festivals in the nation. The streets close and the artists get down and dirty with pastels developing very complex works of art. It is truly amazing to watch the process of how these works are done.
