Columbia Neighbors, please join us on July 4th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM to play with chalk on the sidewalk in front of your own home. This is for all ages, from pre-schoolers to adults, beginners to professionals. And then we can all dress up and tour the neighborhood from 2:00 to 5:00 PM to see our fun creations! Musicians are encouraged to sign up to play from their front porches. Crafters, artists, gardeners etc can display & sell their wares.

How to get on the map: Use the button below to fill out the sign-up form. This will collect your contact information (which we will only use to coordinate with you and will never share or exploit in any way), and the location where you plan to chalk/play music, etc. We will add your location onto the map, and a description if you’d like to add one.

Last year we found that the more houses on a block signed up, the more folks came to see what was happening there. Invite your neighbors and sign up together.

There’s a place on the sign-up page to request chalk if you need it. Please try to provide your own chalk, and find it as soon as possible. We have a limited supply, so request early.

The Parade: Dress up! Decorate your bikes, trikes, wagons, and your sweet selves! We can have a socially distanced parade, and we ourselves can be the Event. As we view the Chalk, we can also view each other. Use your vehicle as a parade float. Decorate! Celebrate!

This is a community project, If you have ideas of how to make this better or would like to get involved, email Flip Breskin:
