Hundreds of folks filled the streets of Baltimore’s Little Italy to watch artists – local, national and international – create incredible chalk paintings on those very streets.

The three-day Little Italy Madonnari Arts Festival was a joint effort of the restaurants of Little Italy, the Associated Italian American Charities of Maryland and Columbus Celebrations, Inc.
