VIDEO ADDED: Campbell River street event chalks it up to a lot of fun and creativity

Although the threat of a thunderstorm loomed over the Live Streets Chalk Art Festival on Shoppers Row Wednesday, all but a few drops held off allowing the creativity to flow in this lively event. Artists of all kinds came out to create chalk art compositions in an effort to win prizes and have fun.

This years free Chalk Art Festival had an open site license allowing for the service of wine and beer but also creating the need for security at the gate checking bags. Food trucks provided the snacks while participants and spectators took in the music, art and the lively spirit of this CR Live Streets Event put on by the Tidemark Theatre, The Campbell River Art Gallery and The City of Campbell River

Prize Categories: Adult, Family, Youth and Child, and Community Group. Community Group winners will donate $500 to the cause of their choice.
