Watch the Virginia Beach boardwalk turn into a wonderland of color this weekend!

The annual Chalk the Walk ARTsplosion event on July 7 will feature artists, both professional and amateur, drawing four-by-four chalk drawings for three blocks of the boardwalk.

You can see the chalk masterpieces from 15th to 17th Street between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

But Chalk the Walk isn’t just for beauty, some of the artists are there to win trophies and cash prizes.

A panel of judges will score the drawings based on elements like composition, use of color, creativity and the adherence to theme. This year’s theme is “A World of Magic.”

There is no fee to participate and you can register the day of by 12:30 p.m. Bringing your own chalk is recommended.
