I'm always mesmerized by the 3-D chalk works that you see on the internet and in social media. Now, this weekend, we have the chance to see these street drawings live and up close! The Hudson Valley Chalk Festival starts today and runs through Sunday on Main Street in New Paltz. 

The tradition started in Renaissance Italy and continues today. The festival will bring the works of 21 visiting national artists and 14 professional locals to life.  3-D images will jump off the pavement and look so realistic that you will be ready to jump into the scene. 
The festival runs 9:30 AM to dusk July 18, 19, and 20 at the Water Street Market in New Paltz, which is a relatively short jaunt up the NYS Thruway from Nyack, New City, Nanuet, or anywhere else in Rockland. There will be live music, raffles, and face painting for the kids. Plus the wonderful ambiance and food of New Paltz. Sounds like a perfect weekend day adventure!
