New this year Downtown Evanston is hosting a Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest to add color and design to the downtown sidewalks and create a friendly, artsy competition between businesses, artists and families in Evanston! The sidewalk in front of storefronts will be decorated on Friday afternoon and evening. Come out on Saturday to view the outdoor art gallery while you shop and eat downtown. The double asterisk next to a business name indicates that they will have chalk art design!
Bring the kids on Saturday for balloon twisting and face painting from 12-2pm at Fountain Square, sponsored by Christopher B. Burke Engineering. There will be big games (Jenga and Scrabble) and ping pong as well!
