August 16, 2014 - Celebrate Erie is all about good music, good food, and good artwork.

The talents of numerous artists are on display at the ChalkWalk.

Downtown is now lined with beautiful chalk creations.

For some, like artist Michael Mele, this is a first time experience that has given him a chance to showcase his artistic talents in a brand new way.

"I've never done chalk drawing before in my life. I've never tried a 3-D drawing either as far as large scale like this," said Mele.

For others, like Julia Franz, participating in the ChalkWalk is an annual tradition, one that is a good time for the entire family.

The winner of the ChalkWalk contest will be announced on the main stage Saturday evening.
