The 11th annual Chalk It Up! event saw nice weather (not too hot!), live entertainment and free admission this past weekend, April 13-14, in the parking lot of the National Bank of Arizona, 201 N. Montezuma St.

Carlene Smith, 9, of Prescott, was present again - working on a sunflower; this past year, she won a gift certificate to Bearizona and was able to treat family members visiting from Guam.
