In an ongoing effort to promote community involvement, art and creativity, while also emphasizing the importance of staying home during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Wake Forest is inviting residents to participate in “Chalk Your Walk Week.”

During the week of April 13, Wake Forest families are invited to use chalk to draw pictures and write positive and uplifting messages on their driveways and sidewalks.

Each day that you participate, please share with us photos of your pictures and messages through the online form on our website at Throughout the week, we’ll post on the Town of Wake Forest Facebook page the pictures we’ve received and upload them to our online photo gallery. We also invite you to post your pictures on social media and use the hashtag #StayStrongWF.

At the end of the week, we’ll announce on Facebook three winners who will receive a special prize. For more information, visit
