The Annual Street Painting Festival held in February in Lake Worth is the largest in the United States. It includes more than 600 artists of all ages and draws up to 100,000 people. The works created with chalk on asphalt range from Renaissance to postmodern and graffiti. Some artists create jaw-dropping masterpieces while socializing with those passing by. There are also plenty of delicious food and live music to entertain visitors. The Lake Worth Street Painting Festival is a real open-air museum of art and sound.
Children of all ages are also excited to participate, creating their own masterpieces. In the recent years, artists have been also creating large-scale murals on shipping containers on South J Street. Most art lives only until the next rainfall for a couple of days or weeks.
