Hickory – Hickory Parks, Recreation & Sports Tourism is partnering with the Hickory Museum of Art to offer a two-day Chalk Our Walk contest.

The Chalk Our Walk Challenge is a free sidewalk chalk art exhibition and contest being held at Stanford Park, located at 1451 8th Street Drive NE, on Friday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Whether you are a professional artist or an “art dabbler,” this event is a fantastic opportunity for individuals and families to get outside, enjoy being creative, experience the creativity of others, have great fun, and maybe win prizes. Participants ages 3 and up can select to compete individually by age group, or as a group of two to five people. Prizes will be awarded in each category, as well as a Best in Show and People’s Choice Award.
