For the duration of August, Yellowknife residents are encouraged to decorate Veterans Memorial Drive (49 Avenue) in chalk art. 

In an event the city is calling ‘The Great Sidewalk Chalk Mural,’ the municipality is providing chalk and hand sanitizer outside the Fireweed Studio (by Somba K’e Plaza) every day day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The city invites residents of all ages and skill levels to add their piece to this community art project.
