The second annual Beaufort International Chalk Festival at Beaufort Town Center was a hit!

Families of all sizes and artists of all ages painted the streets, played with mimes and puppeteers, browsed the art market, and experienced an Aztec and Catholic-influenced Day of the Dead Ceremony. Chalk master Lee Jones of Orlando created a new masterpiece and helped judge the exciting competition, along with Deanna Bowdish, LaShanta Ase, and Jennifer Kassing Bradley.
