As part of the Friday in the 'Fonte celebration in July, we’re going to bring Bellefonte to life with colorful artwork created with chalk on High and Allegheny streets downtown. Squares will be designed by residents and families, as well as local businesses and organizations during this fundraiser that benefits Downtown Bellefonte Inc.!
Participants can purchase one or more $25 squares to design and decorate between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday — supplies included! At 1:30 p.m., a panel will judge each square in the following three categories: Family/Children; Business/Organization; Individual. Want more room to spread out? Purchase multiple squares and make your mural as big as fits on the sidewalk!
New this year, we're adding a People's Choice Award, where our social media followers will also vote on their favorite square via social media. All prize winners will be announced on Downtown Bellefonte Inc.'s Facebook page in the week following the event.
Thanks to the Bellefonte Art Museum, supplies for this event are covered! You’ll be able to register and pick up your chalk at the Downtown Bellefonte Inc. table at Friday in the 'Fonte (near the Library and Historic Museum) starting at 4 p.m. on Friday, and in front of Bellefonte SpringBoard (127 S. Allegheny Street) on Saturday.
