Taking Chalk Art to the Next Level

Newburgh's Rivertown Trail is already a great place to enjoy some of the best scenery in the Tri-State, but several people took it upon themselves to take it to the next level.

It all happened at the farmers market’s second annual Chalk Art Contest.

More than 20 works of art graced the pavement, from cartoon characters to more obscure works of art.

There were only four winners in four different categories - child, youth, adult and family. We caught up with the Bootz family whose mermaid made them the winners in the family category.

"She helped us color in and draw the mermaid, and she learned a lot of blending techniques and she's quite the little artist, so she actually inspired me to try to work on this project, and we had a lot of fun,” said Lori Bootz.

While the fun was the most important part for the family, the $100 movie pass was also a nice cherry on top.
