Reston Town Center Chalk Fest 2017!

By: Theresa Coates Ellis, Team SFMC — Where can you see everything from “It” to rainbows and flowers in the streets? The spectacular exhibit of Chalk Fest on Market Street in Reston Town Center displays professional and amateur talents for everyone to see.

Team SFMC visited and enjoyed the vibrant colors and youth bands playing for the community of families.

Chalk stained fingers and proud artists worked hours on their pieces with favorites including Harry Potter, a retro VW bug, a sailing ship and a tasty meal.

Thanks to Public Art Reston for organizing this popular interactive event showcasing our creative folks!
