Bright colored murals and more than 600 artists filled the Paseo Colorado at the twenty first annual Pasadena Chalk Festival held on June 15 -16 in Pasadena, Calif.

On Saturday morning, artists began to set up in the designated locations and start murals. The artists created murals individually or in groups.

Throughout the day the murals began to take shape after some artists had used grids to map out the murals and other artists did the murals by freehand. The grids would become covered as the chalk was added to the mural.
