Main Street Arbor Lakes is the Artist’s Zone with professional, student and amateur artists chalking their creations for you! Yes, it's a competition, but who says you can't have 'fun' and 'competition' in the same sentence? Not us! Be sure to come both days to watch the artists chalk the streets of Arbor Lakes.
