Chalk the Walk is Cinco de Mayo!

A committee made up of representatives of the City of Mount Vernon, the Mount Vernon Area Arts Council and the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group have announced that this year’s Chalk the Walk festival will take place Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

This image by Robert Rodriguez will be the centerpiece of Chalk the Walk 2018 as Mount Vernon celebrates Cinco de Mayo!

The centerpiece of the event will be a 30′ by 50′ recreation of California artist Robert Rodriguez’ “Cinco de Mayo.” The image was originally designed by Rodriguez for the 1998 Cinco de Mayo stamp, which was issued jointly by the U.S. and Mexican Postal Service.
