The Newington Waterfall Festival will take place on Market Square on Saturday, September 19th from 10 – 4. A highlight of the event is the Chalk Walk where artists, age 8 – adult, create their masterpieces on the street. Some examples from last year:
President, Pat Tanger, is Chalk Walk Committee Chair and Newington Art League members Fran Guzzardi, Ellen Schuman and Phyllis Small have volunteered to judge the work.
