19th Annual Pasadena Chalk Festival

A while back I wrote a blog entry about the artistic creations by the "Chalk Guy"
I just came across this information that I found in one of those magazines that they have in the seat pockets on various airlines.
For the last 19 years, Pasadena, CA has been having a sidewalk chalk festival.
This event is held every June 18th and 19th and this years event attracted more than 600 artist from around the Golden State and beyond.
Some 25,000 sticks of chalk are used to artistically beautify the courtyards of Pasadena's Paseo Colorado, an upscale outdoor mall that covers 3 city blocks.
The 2010 festival broke the Guinness World Record for the largest display of chalk art in a single location.
They even have a special area for the younger artists called Kids Chalkland.
