Watch the history of Ontario, Waterloo Region and Cambridge - your history - be recreated right before your eyes on the streets of downtown Galt in chalk! Artists from the region will create a Goliath sized 150 foot x 5 foot chalk street art canvas, depicting images of historical importance in Ontario and the local area. Chalk The Walk 150 will be a creative, chronological revival of heritage landmarks, historical events from native culture to the settlers, people of influence, leaders of change and more - it will be a true spectacle not to be missed.
