Chalk it Up! 2019


It was a perfect summer Saturday for the 2019 Chalk it Up! More than 33 artists laid down colorful artwork along Main Street and hundreds arrived to enjoy their creativity and leave behind a little of their own at interactive spaces that encouraged imagination, color and surprise!

The Winner is…

Local talent, Colleen Gimben took top honors the 4th Annual Chalk it Up! as the People’s Favorite with images of the iconic Vermilion Lighthouse. Sponsored by Shore Thing, Colleen won a $100 gift certificate to Chez Francois, Vermilion’s 4-star destination restaurant with riverside seating and a dining experience fit for our winner. Congratulations, Colleen!

Thank you!

Our volunteers and crew worked throughout the summer to bring Chalk it Up to the community! Thank you all for making this possible!
