Chalk, chalk and more chalk – Benton artists plan to decorate sidewalks at Benton Community Park

The second-ever “Chalk Benton” event will be held this Saturday, July 31 at Benton Community Park.

Triston Bigham, of Benton, was busy this week advertising his second-ever “Chalk Benton” event this Saturday at Benton Park.

Triston Bigham, a Benton High School grad, initiated the first event a few weeks ago as just a way of getting a few creative friends together to draw with chalk. Bigham, who has a passion for chalk drawing, will attend Rend Lake College this fall and study graphic design. He said the first event was so successful – more than 25 showed up to show off their chalk drawing skills — that he wanted to hold another event at Benton Community Park.

The event will begin at 2 p.m., just look for a crowd with chalk in their hand and a smile on their face. You can also find more information on Facebook at Chalk Benton.
