Hillyard ChalkArtWalk on Saturday

For the 15th year in a row the Hillyard Heritage Celebrations will be putting on a free chalk art walk on Saturday June 3 starting at 10 a.m.

Artists are encouraged to bring their own sidewalk chalk when they register on the corner of Olympic Avenue and Market Street. For the chalk-less a smaller assortment of chalk is available for free at registration, and special handmade chalk in bright colors are sold as a fundraiser for Hillyard Heritage Celebrations. Once you've registered, you may claim a space on the sidewalk in the historic downtown Hillyard business district and start drawing. (Oil pastels, surface preparation and paint is not allowed).

Every Chalk Art Walk has a theme, and this year it's music. Winners are picked in five age categories and a Best of Show prize is awarded, too. Expect judging to begin at 2:30 p.m. Results will be announced at the registration booth.

This is a great family event - whether you draw or not. The 100 first participants will receive a free t-shirt featuring last year's winning design.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
