Petoskey Festival on the Bay features 'Chalk and Chocolate' this weekend

The sidewalks down by the Little Traverse Wheelway near Bayfront Park will be the target of artists of all ages and abilities for the 3rd annual CHALK & CHOCOLATE during the Festival on the Bay on August 17, 2013. The event is a fundraiser for the Crooked Tree Arts Center and the Top of Michigan Trails Council.

With a $20.00 fee to artists (aged 16 years and above), areas of sidewalk are available to participants to create their own chalk paintings.Registration begins at 8 am at a booth near the fishing pond on the Little Traverse Wheelway. Participants can stop by anytime during the morning and afternoon to create their work. Artist's chalk is included with the fee.

Artists may also choose to enter a competition to have their work of art judged in two categories: Open Theme and a Master's or Renaissance Reproduction. There will be cash awards of $500 for first place in both categories and $250 second, and for $150 third place in the Open Theme both categories. There is also a Junior Division (15 years and younger) with $10 entry fee and 3 Honorable Mention Awards given. New for 2013 is the $500 People's Choice Award.

Kilwin's Chocolates, Sugarbean Cupcakes, and CoCo Tree among others will be providing a CHOCOLATE TASTING during the event. For a $5 fee per individual, you will be able to sample delicious chocolates and vote on your favorite. The proceeds of the chocolate sampling will be donated to the Crooked Tree Arts Center and the Top of Michigan Trails Council. Music will fill the air and there are many more surprises as you stroll along the sidewalks viewing the artwork which remains in place until the next rainfall.
