Thank you to everyone who participated in #ChalkTheWalkOP this year! We had a great turn out and loved seeing your artistic contributions to Overland Park’s sidewalks.
Come back next summer for details about Chalk the Walk 2023!
Bring out your creative side and chalk up the walks following this year’s theme, “Looking Up.” Create an original chalk artwork between August 17 -28. Take a photo of your masterpiece and submit it online.
