Chalktoberfest 2017 and 2019, part 1" where I showed pictures from the 2017 chalk festival. The following contains photos from the 2019 chalk festival. I usually would attend on the Sunday when all the chalk drawings were finished, but rain was expected that day, so I decided to go on Saturday afternoon, October 12, 2019. First of all it was difficult to find a parking place. Where parking had been free in earlier years, now it was quite expensive. When I went to the first chalk fest in Marietta in 2013 there were 20 artists from around the country then and a small crowd of onlookers. In 2019, 86 international chalk artists took part and the crowd had increased to over 100,000 attendees!
