Hillsboro Chalk Art Festival--July 15-16, 2023 (and the stroll in after days)
What a fun event!
The Artists and their Artistry
The artists were just outlining & beginning their work when I arrived. Intriguing impetus to come back when they would be finished.
Performing Artists filled the air with music--I could only catch up with some of them.
Vendors & Exhibitors
Nearly every booth and vendor offered fun family activities. I tried to get photos before the crowds complicated my efforts to show what there was to see and do.
Food Vendors--always favorites for such events!
I was so anxious to leave home, hoping to arrive early for parking, I forgot to bring my ice bottles. Then I was desperate for ice to cool my phone camera on such a hot day.
Saturday Market--the alternate location (for the sake of the Chalk Art Festival) was an easy roll nearby. By the time I got there, though, it was nearly done. Of course they had food as well as a variety of other vendors, but only one table for eating.
Historic Downtown Hillsboro OR
I wandered about a bit, though mostly in the vicinity of the Chalk Art Festival. Of course there were permanent places to eat, to expand on the variety from which one could choose.
About Hillsboro OR
Hillsboro Station Food Carts & Bar--Baseline St between 3rd & 4th Ave (the bar is inside)
A nice variety of cuisines, large indoor dining area, restrooms, a small kid area indoors, some gravel parking on the east side. On a Saturday, for the Chalk Art Festival, I parked across 3rd Ave in the little business center. There's a handy Shell station across from it on Baseline.

I've been in a wheelchair for 30+ years. It poses some challenges for traveling. Maybe others can benefit from my experiences.
