Chalk Walk

The 2016 Chalk Walk, held September 30 – October 1. The streets in and around Centennial Plaza were filled with artists drawing and executing original works of art. Plus, the three stages also were filled with talented performers from Round Rock and beyond.

Friday night’s highlight was a 2 hour concert from Dale Watson, is an American/Texas Country singer, guitarist, songwriter, and self-published author based in Austin, Texas. He champions “Ameripolitan” as a new genre of original music and has positioned himself as a tattooed, stubbornly independent outsider who is interested in recording authentic country music. As a result, he has become a favorite of critics and alt-country fans.

So another glorious Chalk Walk has come and gone from Downtown, but we’ve got the winners immortalized for you here.
