The weekend's Street Painting Festival

So we went to the 22nd annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival on Sunday, the event seems to get bigger every year. We found free street parking right away, parked and ventured in.
There was all kinds of art from children doing their thing to experts doing 3D Chalk paintings.
The crowds were thick, lots of people out on a Sunday; restaurants and bars were overflowing, we had a great lunch at a restaurant but still managed to get some ice cream and other goodies from street vendors.
It was overcast, but the rain held off.

These are amazing! Such creativity this would brighten up the Grove and give back a little of the art we lost when the galleries moved out.

Was there any price gouging for parking like the Grove parking garage operators do during major events?

This is what the Grove used to be like.
No price gouging in parking lots or for beer, ice-cream or food. No broken sidewalks, no potholes and no parking meters. No overflowing trash containers. No need for police on every corner. No fence on the public streets to gate the event so that they may sell tickets. Plenty of family friendly fun for all ages and all economic groups. Shops and restaurants were filled. Street vendors were buys. Lake Worth also has lowrise buildings, few condos, no shopping centers in their Village, lots of Mom and Pop businesses, few franchises, they have kept their historic buildings and value the arts and the characters that live there. Its everything that our present Grove has lost.

Love Lake Worth, and I'm sorry I missed the street painting festival this year. Though, I enjoy it up there any old weekend.

Such a fun vibe in that great little village.

Lake Worth probably doesn't run a scam on event planners for street closures, permit fees left and right, and fees on top of fees just because. It's ridiculous.

Lake worth shows what a community event can be without Miami price gouging and government interference, obstruction and obfuscation.

Looks like most of the folks posting comments are pleased with the Chalk Street Art Festival, admire Lake Worth and wish Coconut Grove was more like it. So other than posting a comment here, what are your plans that you will put into action on how you will actually improve Coconut Grove? How about less postings and more positive action!
