This Saturday in downtown Eau Claire!

Posted August 1st, 2013

It is sure to be a fun filled and FREE Saturday, August 3! VolumeOne is hosting their annual Chalkfest at Wilson Park. The artists will be hard at work throughtout the day creating beautiful sidewalk artwork, all done with chalk! Stop by between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and watch the elaborate, large-scale art come to life. 

In addition to the breathtaking artwork, Chalkfest will have music (in true VolumeOne style!), food and chalk related games (think Pictionary). There will also be an area for kids to participate in a children's mural. 

After gaping at all the art, head down to Phoenix Park for Downtown Eau Claire, Inc.'s Family Night in the Park at Phoenix Park. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with children's inflatables, jugglers, crafts and more! The Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild's Golden Trunk Players will put on an interactive show at 8:00 p.m. 

At 8:30, we will show "The Lorax" on a 25x14 foot screen. The event is Dr. Seuss themed, so dress up as your favorite Dr. Seuss character! Addmission and popcorn is free, so grab a blanket, some friends and family, and come on down!
