A little rain welcomed the Chalk the Block public art festival in Downtown El Paso this year, but the fun ensued after the skies cleared.
The festival Oct. 12-14 featured artists of all levels showcasing their work on the Downtown sidewalks, live music, entertainment, street performances, food vendors and more.
The 11th annual event by the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department and the El Paso Community Foundation attracts more than 40,000 people and pumps about $1.2 million into the local economy each year.
