WAUSAU (WAOW)– Chalkfest begins at the 400 block Saturday in downtown Wausau, but a few artists were able to start their drawings today.
The “Featured Artists” are voted on by fellow artists. The five with the most votes are recognized and are able to start their drawings a day before everyone else.
“It’s pretty cool to finally get it, I did get honorable mention once so sixth place through tenth place is honorable mention but there’s so many good artists here I think there was over five hundred people last year so to be in the top five out of five hundred different people is pretty amazing,” said artist Kristin Tabaka. This is her tenth year competing in the event.
The event goes from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
