You can chalk it up to a fun way to express yourself.
The fourth annual Sidewalk Chalk Flood lets kids of all ages decorate the sidewalks with art of their own.
From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. you can decorate the Western Gateway Park in Downtown Des Moines.
If chalk isn’t your thing, there will also be yoga, Zumba, face-painting, games and music for the whole family to enjoy.
The event is sponsored by Community! Youth Concepts, a local nonprofit to engage the youth of Iowa.
