UPDATE (May 5) — Due to rainy weather approaching, we have extended Chalk It Up SoBo 3 through Sunday, May 15.
We had such a great time the last two years with South Baltimore residents taking to their sidewalks with an explosion of free-form chalk art that we had to do it again!
The Peninsula Post has teamed up with Key Group of Cummings & Co. Realtors to host Chalk It Up SoBo 3 in May. As in previous years, there will be free chalk and a Prize Drawing for gift cards to your favorite peninsula eateries.
Here’s how to get involved:
WHAT: 3rd Annual South Baltimore Sidewalk Chalk Challenge
WHEN: Friday-Sunday, May 6-15, 2022
