Want to check out something really cool? Head to the Hudson Valley Chalk Festival this weekend. The festival starts Friday, July 18 and runs through Sunday, July 20 at the Water Street Market in New Paltz. 

You'll get to see over 30 professional and local chalk artists turn the parking lot into an art gallery, plus there will be a chalk car to draw on, an open chalk area, free face painting, puppet shows, and raffles. Sounds like fun for the whole family!
