Thank you to all who participated in the Chalk Art Festival 2022, held on October 15, in conjunction with RedRocktoberfest, put on by the Kanab City Arts Board. This year was another roaring success due to the many sponsors, vendors and artists who took part in the festivities, as well as those who came to simply view and enjoy the colorful art, dance numbers and musical performances.
There was something for everyone with performances from Red Rock Dance, a youth bluegrass ensemble, The W Duo and The Chris Paul Band.
While viewing the art and soaking in the live performances, festivalgoers were able to enjoy food and treats from the many vendors; and if they fancied making a pit-stop, adults could spend some time in the beer garden thanks to Sego Restaurant.
A special thank you goes to the many chalk artists who spent several hours over the course of three days working on their masterpieces. Though awards were only given to a select handful of artists, everyone did tremendous work bringing colorful life to the Kanab Center grounds.

Better keep an eye on the road behind you on these chilly fall nights ... or Mason Barber’s headless horseman just might get you! Photo by Harry Barber.
Though this colorful, “poisonous” frog is only made of chalk, you still better not touch it! Photo by Camberly Anderson.
Another prehistoric fellow, though this one may not be too keen on a fight. What a cool perspective! Photo by Camberly Anderson.
