Hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design, the event includes a chalk competition for students, alumni and prospective students. Participants work individually or in groups to create an outdoor museum of jaw-dropping street paintings. Judges give awards to the best work in several categories. The festival, which is usually held in late April, is free to the public, and attendees are encouraged to photograph their favorite pieces. The day's festivities also include music, food and fun, interactive activities for kids.
