Mission Viejo Street Painting Festival

Have you ever received one of those email forwards filled with amazing pictures of works of art created with chalk on sidewalks? I am always impressed at what artists can do with a little sidewalk chalk and imagination. Well at the beginning of the month we had the pleasure of seeing some of these artists putting on a terrific (and free!) display at the Mission Viejo Street Painting Festival . We went to the first day of this two day festival and watched the artists start their incredible pieces of art.

As we walked in a very nice couple walked out and gave us all their food tickets so we enjoyed a tasty sausage sandwich lunch and the kids got to have their very first snow cones! Obviously, the snow cones were a hit!

Another cool thing about the festival was that they had an area set up for kids to create their very own works of art.

And I have to give a shout out to my friend Tamara who makes these fabulous custom shirts. I love mine! Check out her etsy store here.

My only regret is that we didn't go back for day 2 to see how everything turned out. Next year!

Hey Everyone! I love art especially when it seems so real. One of my favorite types of art is sidewalk 3d chalk art. Enjoy
