Paint the town — with chalk

A young girl sits on one of Anat Ronen’s chalk creations. Ronen, of Houston, will create a large three-dimensional street painting at this year’s Kerrville Chalk Festival, which gets underway today at Peterson Plaza in downtown Kerrville. The free event will feature an estimated 95 artists, as well as live music and more. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Plenty of parking is available in the garage across Sidney Baker Street from the venue. Food trucks will be on site offering a variety of food and drinks, and free tours will be given at the nearby Schreiner Mansion. For more information on the festival, visit
