Getting there

And here's one last shot from this weekend's Chalk Art Walk, submitted by Luke Tolley. This year's Chalk Art Walk theme was 'Getting There' reflecting on the progress Hillyard has made over the past decade. If you've never been, don't miss this event next year.

Chalk Art Walk draws a crowd

Lots and lots of people come to Hillyard for the annual Chalk Art Walk. The weather wasn't too bad this year, when the artists hit the Market Street sidewalks on Saturday June 18.

Chalk Art Walk repeats success

The Hillyard Blog was on vacation during the Chalk Art Walk and missed one of the best family events in Spokane. This year's theme was 'Getting There' and as always kids of all ages lined the sidewalks and colored away. Luke Tolley shared a few photos with the blog - including this one featuring young artist Ryan Schatz.

The blog is back -

- from vacation, just in time for the sun to come out.
Hey, does anyone have some great pictures from the Hillyard Chalk Art Walk this weekend?
E-mail them to piah@spokesman.com and I'll share some on the blog.

And here's a link to the early edition of the Hillyard Festival Gazette. This is the 100th anniversary of the Hillyard Festival and it runs from August 5 to August 7. I know the good folks behind the festival need all the help they can get as this year's festival is bigger than it's been in years.
The Festival Association meets every Tuesday at 6:30  p.m. at the North East Community Center - just show up - or call Luke Tolley at (509) 475-3509.
You can also join the Hillyard Festival Association on Facebook here.

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.
