2023 Chalk Walk Rained Out

The Arts In Strongsville’s Chalk Walk event planned for today (Saturday • May 20) has unfortunately been rained out! It’s been raining for several hours overnight. The ground is pretty soaked. The rain is expected to continue. The sun won’t come out til later this afternoon. The pavement won’t be dry for several hours.

Even though the rain has cancelled the event, we invite you to chalk on your own (in your driveway, sidewalks, wherever!) and post your chalk masterpieces to our Facebook page – just search for Arts In Strongsville. We hope to see you in 2024 for this free, fun family event. Stay dry, Strongsville!
