Hundreds of people helped transform Newbury’s Market Place into a work of art on Friday by covering the ground in chalk artworks.
Chalkfest, which was being hosted by City Arts Newbury was held for the third time.
People could turn up on the day, help themselves to chalk, find a space on the floor and let their creative juices run free.
Among the impressive array of colourful pictures were pirate ships, the Taj Mahal, and a few unicorns.
Organisers were hopeful that they will have beaten last year’s total number of visitors and reach the 1,000 mark.
Claire Struthers-Semple, one of the founders of City Arts Newbury, said: “I’ve lost count of how many participants we’ve had.
“The whole of the Market Place was covered, and that is what City Arts is all about, getting the whole community of all ages involved in art.
“Everybody’s loved it and they’ve wanted to know more about City Arts and that’s the whole objective of the exercise.
“So lots of happy faces, lots of mucky hands and a lack of wetwipes, but apart from that it’s been positive and we’ve been lucky with the weather.”
Money was also collected for City Arts through donations and a competition during the day to find the best picture.
