Mayor Barlow said, “The Oswego Chalk Walk Event was a great idea created by the Oswego Youth Bureau during times of COVID and social distancing. Due to the popularity of the first two chalk walks, we’ll be bringing back another event to keep the fun coming! I encourage Oswego families to get outside, get creative and participate in this wonderful family event.”
“This is a great event to get all families involved to do their best artwork outside but safely, at home.” said Jennifer Losurdo from the Oswego City County Youth Bureau. “Our first chalk walk was a huge success and the families enjoyed working together. Chalking starts early so start planning your artwork!”
