WAUSAU (WAOW)--  Saturday, artists young and old filled the 400 Block in downtown Wausau, chalk and ruler in hand. 

It was the 7th annual Wausau Chalkfest where artists used their talents to decorate the cities newest park.

Works of art ranged from cartoon characters to colorful collages.

Jim Hellrood, one of last years winners says being out here every year is something he looks forward too.

"All the artists here are just excellent to work with and people share everything and you never realize how much comradery there is until it rains," he says with a smile.

Chalkfest ended around 8 p.m. on Saturday and will continue into Sunday.  Some artists say their works of art take over 15 hours to complete.
