It's the last day of the 22nd Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival, an event transforming the streets of downtown Lake Worth.

More than 600 artists are making the streets come alive with masterpieces made from chalk. There are 260 of them this year.

Everyone from tattoo to fine artists are creating the art.

They'll be on display on Lake, Lucerne, Jay and Kay Streets in downtown Lake Worth.

Event producer Nadine Burns says the festival bought $5,000 worth of chalk. That's 1,200 trays.

The festival opens at 10 a.m. Artists will finish up around 6 p.m. But the event is open until 8:30 p.m.

To get there, take the TriRail to the Lake Worth Station, where there will be a free shuttle to take people to and from the event.

There's plenty of food, live music and admission is FREE.
