Don't forget to check out the annual Chalk on the Walk located on Church Street! Each year, the Cambridge Rotary's Club's Chalk on the Walk raises thousands of dollars for local charities. The art of chalk street painting has a history stretching back as far as the Italian Renaissance. Corporate and individual patrons sponsor painting squares and artists donate their creativity and talents. Prizes are awarded to the artists and proceeds from the event go to local Cambridge charities and scholarships.
