Katharine Boyette, Events Coordinator for the Chalk Festival in Kerrville, spoke to us last week about this upcoming event. This annual festival, organized by the Cailloux Foundation and funded by numerous local sponsors, is October 15th and 16th, and promises to be fun for all ages. Professional artist, art teachers, budding art students and others will showcase their chalk art on the sidewalks of Peterson Plaza in downtown Kerrville, next to city Hall.
In addition to the art being created both days, there is live music, food trucks, a photo mural, corn hole toss, face painting, balloon art, a cookie walk, and free tours of the Schreiner Mansion. The art will only remain on the sidewalk for about a week after the show, so get down there to see it prime time on the weekend while it is still sharp and fresh.
This year, the beneficiary of the funds raised by the event will be Kerr Arts and Cultural Center. Over the years of the festival's existence, $245,000 has been raised and donated to local organizations.
Hours are 10-5 on Saturday, and 10:30-4 on Sunday. 
Volunteers are needed if you can lend a hand.
