Sidewalk Arts Festival

If someone said, "Let's go to the Sidewalk Arts Festival" what would you envision?You'd probably think artwork on canvas' set on easels lined up along the sidewalk for you to view. Right?
Well think again, that may be what you'd see somewhere else but not here in Savannah. On Saturday,April 28th the SCAD Sidewalk Arts Festival will be held in Forsyth Park and the artwork is literally on the sidewalk with chalk being the medium. This wonderful festival will be celebrating its 31st year in 2012. Participants begin their work in the morning and is judged in the afternoon. Visitors can view the artists at work and their completed temporary chalk masterpieces from 11:00 am till 5:00 pm. There's also music and food, of course.
While you're in the park don't forget the local Farmer's Market held weekly from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm at south end of the park. Lot's of local produce baked good and more. Yum!
