The 9th annual Chalk It Up was held on October 13, 2012 on Houston Street in downtown San Antonio. Artpace San Antonio organized the free event. Several blocks of Houston Street were closed to traffic so that school groups, organizations, professional artists and festival attendees could create chalk art on the sidewalks and street. Activities also included live music, food booths and hands-on activities. Festival goers included many children and their families. Here are pictures of some of the art that was created during the festival.
