This year, there was an added attraction. You see, my 10-year-old daughter has always enjoyed the festival, and this past year, she decided to be more than a spectator. My artistic girl entered her own creation in the festival. It took her a good three hours to finish it.
Of course, she wasn't the only person who created masterpieces on the sidewalks of Byron Center. Below are a few of our favorites, and award-winners.
This one was, needless to say, AMAZING. It won first place for adults, as well as people's choice. The chalk artist, Tess Tobolic, is a medical illustrator. No wonder she got the animal anatomy just right!
There were several other wonderful works, which you can see pictures of at the Festival's Facebook page.
We will definitely be back for next year's festival. Will my daughter do her second entry? I guess you will have to wait and see. :)
What is your favorite local festival?
