Get ready to add a splash of color to your weekend because Chalkfest is taking over Main Street! More than 50 artists, including the talented Shawn, are gearing up to turn the pavement into a canvas of vibrant artwork. According to a recent post on the Maple Grove Government's Facebook page, the event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.

While Shawn and other artists busy themselves with their chalk creations, you may find yourself swaying to the live music that'll fill the air. Remember, though, along with the professionals, there will be a chance for you to try your hand at chalking, which can make for a hands-on experience with your kids to enjoy a variety of activities.

Excited to showcase their latest creations, participants have been teasing glimpses of their planned works, promising an array of styles and subjects. Organizers have prepared a vibrant showcase complete with enthralling art—without having to worry about gallery protocol or hushed conversations, the atmosphere invites casual strolls and open-air admiration.
