Edina, Minn., Sept. 7, 2022 – Back for a third year, the Chalk the Walk event will take place Sept. 22-25 at Centennial Lakes Park, 7499 France Ave. S.
Residents are encouraged to sign up, bring their chalk and create positive messages on dedicated sidewalk panels at the park. Those interested in participating can reserve a concrete square by visiting BetterTogetherEdina.org/2022chalkthewalk by Wednesday, Sept. 21. Participants will be able to work on their chalk design during the hours the park is open (6 a.m.-midnight) during the event days.
Artists should upload a photo of their completed artwork to the Chalk the Walk web page by 8 a.m. Monday, Sept. 26. The community will vote for their favorite creation on the page between Sept. 27 and Oct. 3. A prize will be awarded to the photo with the most votes. The winner will be selected on Oct. 5.
“Chalk the Walk is a fun community event that allows residents to be creative and spread positivity through chalk art. We hope you join us in ‘chalking the walk,’ or stopping by to check out the artwork,” said Recreation Supervisor Amanda Clarke.
The 2021 winner was Daisy Girl Scout Troop 18629 with the entry "Make the World a Better Place."
