The 7th Annual Chalk It Up event drew 127 participants this Memorial Day weekend – an impressive turnout after the event was rescheduled from an earlier date due to rain. Attendees gathered at Rancho Bernardo Community Park for a day of chalk art, refreshments, prizes, and fun.

Overall winners were Emerson Bowles and Rewan Smith, who collaborated on a chameleon drawing. In the senior category, first place went to Sandy Mall and second place went to Jean Davis. Danny Newbanks took first in the adult category, with Nina Mascardo and Lori Baca coming in second and third. High school winners were Gracie Horne, Riley Trecker, and Imran Tallman. Middle school awards went to Alyssa Wilson, Talon Bohn, and Carly Newbanks. Elementary school winners were John Roberts, Jazair Tallman and Hazel Kingery tied for second, and Maci Fogel. Miles Nolan, Alexa Chaim, and Neema Mojo won the preschool category.
