The Street Painting Festival returns to Lake and Lucerne avenues Saturday and Sunday as some 650 artists, including veteran street painters coming from throughout the country, use chalk to transform pavement into about 250 works of art.
Special works at this year’s 19th annual Street Painting Festival will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the city, incorporated in June 1913, and the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de Leon’s arrival in the place he named “La Florida.”
