What happens when more than 500 artists go back to the drawing board — and the drawing board is a bunch of pavement in Pasadena?
The result is the Pasadena Chalk Festival, an explosion of color and style on the walkways of the Paseo Colorado shopping center. Face-painting and designated areas for kids to try their hand at their own variety of beautiful chalk art make this event a Father’s Day weekend classic. 
The Pasadena Chalk Festival this year will also attempt to set a world record for largest display of chalk pavement art.
Saturday and Sunday, June 19-20, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Free. Paseo Colorado, 280 E. Colorado Blvd. Free. (626) 795-9100, pasadenachalkfestival.com
