Arts Hullabaloo returns for its 16th year with exciting new events and returning old favorites guaranteed to share the fun of creativity for kids of all ages. During September 23–25, participants will spend three fun-filled, awe-inspiring days packed with events creating warm memories of the Wet Mountain Valley, showcasing the arts, visual arts, performing arts, musical arts as well as the Art of History and star gazing to name a few.
Chalk Art Competition starts. There will be prizes for kids, families and adults. The theme for this year is ‘The Heart of Custer County’. This really allows you to use your imagination. It can encompass almost anything; family, wildlife, music, art, scenic beauty, the seasons, dark skies, history, there really is no limit. The judging is done by age group.
You can pick up your sidewalk chalk and entry form at Greenstone Artworks, 100 Main St. from 10am to 4pm on Friday and 10am on Saturday. The competition ends at 3pm on Saturday and will be judged after that. The spots for the creation of your Chalk Art will be marked. The chalk art is for all ages as well as families and finishes up on Saturday. Final artwork is judged with cash and special prizes awarded.
