Chalk the Walk is a family-friendly sidewalk chalk festival to raise money for Operation Backpack. Artists of all ages and talents are welcome! This event is sponsored by 88.7 KIGC and FACE of Mahaska County in partnership with United Way of Mahaska County. This will take place by the K-2 playground at the Oskaloosa Elementary School on Saturday, May 2nd from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants can purchase a 10 foot by 12 foot cement "canvas" for only $10 with all proceeds going to Operation Backpack. You can also save $2 off that fee by donating an art supply.
