So many layers!

Denver's Chalk Art Festival is an annual tradition that always brings about the best and brightest creatives from just about anywhere. This year, thousands of revelers courageously braved the near-perfect weather conditions in downtown Denver to witness hundreds of non-permanent works on display.

We sent our resident shutter bug, Mike Kvackay, into the thick of it to show why this Colorado tradition will be a local staple for years to come.
