Marvel at what profession­al artists can create with some chalk and a section of concrete during Colorpaloo­za, the city of Lewisville’s celebratio­n of spring. Artists from Chalk This Way will work on-site during the festival, and families can join in on the chalk art fun. Children can also make sand art, design tie-dye T-shirts and paint cookies. Festival admission is free, but some activities have a fee or suggested donation. Colorpaloo­za will also have an art car display, installati­ons of yarn bombing and water art, chainsaw-carving demonstrat­ions, info on going green in the Eco-alley, arts and crafts booths, food and drink vendors and live entertainm­ent. Performers include Alma y Corazón Tejano Ballet Folklórico, Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble, Mariachi Rosas Divinas, Tu Van Lion Dance, and the Grays, a family band that plays Disney songs.
