Chalk the Block

So in our efforts to take in as much of the local flavor during our travels, we came across an event in El Paso, TX called “Chalk the Block.” The downtown area of El Paso was blocked off and local artists were given chalk and a space of concrete sidewalk to create masterpieces.

We also ran across Matte finished vehicles that the artists were given license to create on as well. To us, the results were stunning.

There was some real innovation in 3D art happening there. To get the true feel of it, you will need to enlarge the photos below on your computer screen, download the app on your phone, and scan the image: Click Here for App Link. Once loaded, you can see the actual photos come to life!

We have now figured out we need to add at least 30 min to each planned outing that we take Brini to because she loves attention and she is sooooo cute that folks just have to stop and pet her in all her excited glory!

They did not leave the kiddies out of the equation. They were given chalk and an area they could express their inner artist as well!

This event was complete with food trucks and so many weight-adding options that smelled delightful and were a sensory over load!P1010510.jpg

This was an amazing event and we highly recommend you pay it a visit should your travels have you in the El Paso area in early October.  (Leigh here. We did stop to enjoy the fare at a local restaurant that didn’t go so well. But I’ll post that under the Beer blog)

Til Next time
Peace and Blessings
