This weekend the streets of Lake Worth will transform into the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival this Saturday and Sunday.
The artwork only lasts until the next raindrop. The street paintings turn the roads into hand drawn artwork. The festival features temporary masterpieces in an open-air museum of art, sound and aromatic segments.
The festival is the largest of its kind in the country and draws a huge crowd every year. The artists create a classic or 3-D masterpiece for viewers to come by and see. The drawings are done by using environmentally friendly chalk on both the sidewalks and street. More than 600 artists will be present at the festival this year creating their works of art while you watch. To see the list of artists who will be at the festival, click here.
The admission to see the street paintings is free and the festival will also have live music and entertainment, food and drinks, a kid creative area, and many more activities throughout the weekend.
