Chalk full of family fun

by: JEFF MCDONALD  - Gervais Mayor Shanti Platt designs a panoramic landscape design in chalk at the 4th annual Chalk Festival Saturday in Gervais. Cloudy skies may have dampened attendance on the fourth annual Chalk Festival in Gervais, but it did not take away the fun.

The festival took over downtown Gervais with kids and adults alike making colorful chalk designs on the sidewalk.

Others played basketball, sampled the variety of food available, or listened to the tunes of DJ Doc Titus.

All in all, the event was a good time for all.
