This chalk festival would be perfect in the Grove
It's not just the chalk, but the town itself is what a lot of Coconut Grove should strive to be. The center of the small town has every business you could imagine from shoe repair to upscale restaurants, there's a bike shop, a cigar shop, a playhouse and so much more strewn around the main shopping area. This is where the chalk event takes place.
Two main streets, Lake Avenue and Lucerne Avenue, and a few side streets are closed and the artists do their thing. There's a section for invited professionals to draw and there's an area where anyone can join in and take part, there is also a children's area, where the kids do some very nice work.
This past weekend the weather was perfect. We ate, we drank, we listened to live music and we people watched. Of course we enjoyed all the artwork which would be gone in the next day or so. The streets are open again to traffic at 7 pm on Sunday night and within a day or so, this chalk art will be gone. Truly ephemeral.
Lucille Ball and Captain America were two of my favorites. Picture them on Commodore Plaza.
A friend joked about not letting the developers know about Lake Worth, as they would devour the place as they have done here in the Grove. But I don't think Lake Worth would allow that to happen.
