After a week of bone chilling rain here in St Louis, the clouds parted and we were blessed with a perfect sunny day for the Benton Park Chalk Art Festival. This 11th Annual Chalk Art Exhibit, Competition and Festival in the Benton Park Neighborhood was held in Historic Benton Park at Arsenal Street & Jefferson Avenue on and around the award winning Strolling Bridge. Walter Knoll Florist was pleased to help sponsor the event – Walter Knoll Florist Gift Cards were given to the first 25 paying adults. For $20 each adult entrant got a pair of cotton gloves, a box of brilliant colored chalk and a piece of the sidewalk! Kids were $1 and received free treasure bags. Viewing of course was Free!
