About the event
We partner with the Creston Chamber of Commerce to decorate the town for thousands of visitors who come for Independence Day celebrations. This program incorporates youth by inviting them to help create chalk murals for local businesses all over town. We give out over 300 packs of chalk to volunteers to create these amazing murals. Our downtown “Walk of Chalk” is a way to proudly represent all the great businesses that help to build our community. This opportunity provides a chance for youth to participate in the community while also showing support to local businesses.
This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of this program. Over the last 10 years, we have created over 300 chalk murals! To mark this amazing feat, we will be having a professional mural created at the Iowa State Savings Bank (ISSB) parking lot!
To volunteer, please meet at the Creston Arts Center on July 2nd and 3rd between 9:00 am and 3:00 PM.
