For two glorious days in early June Larimer Square unleashed several dozen artists armed with chalk and imagination to adorn the pavement in LODO.  Never ending throngs of people crowded around to watch some of the area’s most talented chalk handlers work, as well as enjoy live music, drinks, food and local boutique shopping.  So, you KNOW your boys from 1 / 1 Magazine were going to be there and give you the run down.

If you like pictures of chalk art, artists, random people, a guy with a backwards hat looking very surprised or America I recommend you keep scrolling down.  The event has been so successful a second chalk festival is scheduled to occur in Centennial, CO September 19-20.  For more information go to www. larimerarts.org.
