Lake Worth Street Painting 2016 016

Street Painting Festival in Lake Worth – Feb. 23-24

When February is here, locals know it’s time to check out the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. It’s hard to believe but it’s already been 25 years since its inception. The streets of downtown Lake Worth will be closed to traffic for the unveiling of truly spectacular work of art done by hand using simple chalks onto asphalt. A lot of planning goes into this where talented local and visiting artists transform the streets of Lake Worth into canvas displaying amazing painting.
