Chalk the Walk Returns on July 16th

Gig Harbor, Wash. June 9, 2011. The Gig Harbor Historic Waterfront Association is proud to announce the return of a favorite family summertime activity, “Chalk the Walk,” on Saturday, July 16th from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Artists, aspiring artists, and anyone who just wants to have a day of fun are invited downtown to decorate the sidewalks of Gig Harbor’s Historic Waterfront District with chalk art. The Waterfront Association provides free chalk for everyone, and presents awards in the following categories:

· Kids

· Family

· High School and College Students

· Adults

· Professional Chalk Artists

Chalk the Walk is held in conjunction with Peninsula Art League’s Summer Arts Festival. “Around the Sound” transit will be available to shuttle artists and onlookers between sidewalk districts in downtown and in Finholm. Strolling the sidewalks to view these amazing works of art makes for an enjoyable day in the Harbor! Participants are encouraged to bring knee pads or a chair for comfort. Registration takes place from 10am – 2pm at the Downtown location, in front of the Gig Harbor Fly Shop, and in Finholm across from Anthony’s Restaurant. A face painter will be on hand again this year near the downtown registration location. For more information call (253) 514-0071 or visit
