The 4th Annual Chalk the Walk event, sponsored by the Family & Youth Services Bureau, will take place on Saturday, June 11, 2016, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on the sidewalks surrounding the Porter County Courthouse in downtown Valparaiso. Over one hundred 3 feet by 3 feet squares will be filled with colorful chalk drawings, created by people of all ages and skill levels. Each drawing is sponsored by an area business, organization or individual.
Sponsorships for the 4th Annual Chalk the Walk are still being accepted, and the Family & Youth Services Bureau will accommodate any sponsor as long as space is available.
We are also accepting artist registrations from those 16 and older, and there is no fee to be an artist. Artists who register in advance will be partnered with a sponsor who needs an artist.
To receive a Chalk the Walk registration form to be a sponsor or artist contact the Family & Youth Services Bureau at 219.464.9585 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration forms can also be downloaded at the FYSB website: www.fysb.org.
Chalk the Walk is a family-friendly activity for the community and is an annual fundraising event for the Family & Youth Services Bureau. The Bureau was established in 1972 and serves nearly 5,000 people each year throughout Porter County.
