ST. JOSEPH, Mich. – Artists will take over Broad Street during “Chalk the Block” from August 6 to 8.

At Chalk the Block, amateur and professional artists will fill the streets with chalk masterpieces between Lake Boulevard and State Street in downtown St. Joseph.

Artists will prepare their squares on Friday, work all day on Saturday, and add finishing touches on Sunday.

During the weekend, guests can vote for their favorite artist’s work in the People’s Choice vote. Tickets will be sold at the People’s Choice Tent on Broad Street for $1 each from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday.

One dollar equals one vote. The artist with the most tickets by the end of the weekend wins the People’s Choice Award.
