The TBBCA's 5th annual Chalk Walk was held on March 15-17, 2013 in Tampa's historic Hyde Park Village. This free community art festival attracted over 5,000 visitors to see live artists create original chalk murals and plein air art. Over 40 artists were present for the event and competed for $3,000 in awards. In addition, visitors enjoyed live music and dance performances, an art gallery, stilt performers from Busch Gardens, an outdoor market with gourmet food trucks and drink specials, and a kids' chalk alley filled with crafts and activities for the little ones.
Watch Chalk Walk Artists Dee Sabean and BK Lyons on Tampa's nationally syndicated Daytime with hosts, Cyndi Edwards and Jerry Panacoli.
