The "Chalk-a-Lot" Art Festival takes place on the sidewalks along waterfront drive at Thomas Owens Park in Two Harbors over the weekend. Hosted by the Waterfront Gallery, this is the third year chalk artists have taken over for this colorful festival.

"We're trying to encourage artists and emerging artist to enjoy art as an experience as you would going to a concert of a movie or dance," said event organizer Michelle Ronning. "It's about being involved interactively with those around you who are drawing."

They provided 48 pastel chalks, latex gloves, and sponges for the artist to draw on a 5-by-6-foot slab of sidewalk.
