Approximately 200 artists create unique street paintings using pastel chalks - street paintings that you will only be able to view for two days and then they will become memories.
If it is not raining, let's gather at the “Open the Door” exhibit. The public library consists of two buildings. One is historic architecture, and one is contemporary architecture. We will gather at the circle of painted doors in the plaza between the two buildings (look for the green tiara).
If it is raining, let's gather inside the contemporary library building on the first floor in the world languages section (look for the green tiara).
Admission is free.
This festival happens rain or shine.
No outside food or beverages, coolers, glass containers or pets allowed.
