We decided to spend the afternoon in Hyde Park Village today primarily because of the St. Patrick’s Day activities going on, but also the annual Chalk Walk, which is an exhibition of talent on the sidewalks of South Tampa. There were about fifty artists that took their craft to the streets, with artists ranging from as young as six. There was quality in every inch of what each artist created.
