The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, in partnership with underwriting sponsor Lisa Bayless / Long Realty have come together to collaborate on a Fall chalk art and community celebration to honor the ongoing service of local healthcare workers and first responders in Oro Valley. The one-day celebration will partner up with the Oro Valley Police Department, Golder Ranch Fire District and Oro Valley Marketplace to feature 5 professional chalk art muralists creating stunning 5′ chalk murals on display as a drive-through, pop-up experience at Oro Valley Marketplace. The murals will feature uplifting themes of community, healthcare, and a celebration of public safety. Attendees can safely enjoy stunning colorful pop-up murals, participate in a costume contest from their cars, and receive prepackaged treat bags at the Oro Valley Marketplace parking area near Red Lobster on October 31, 2020 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Kids are encouraged to come dressed for Halloween, especially as the ‘heroes’ of first responders and healthcare that will be honored in the murals. Attendees who arrive in costume can also receive pre-packaged bags of candy as they drive through the activation area, wave to local fire-fighters, police officers and other first responders, and participate in a best face mask and costume competition with prizes from the safety of their vehicle.
Attendees can also compete in a “Best Face Mask” and costume competition both at the event and online. Oro Valley attendees that would like to submit a photo of themselves at the event or from home can post it on the Facebook event or email to [email protected] to compete. Cash gift cards of $250 will be awarded to the winners.
