Prizes awarded for drawings at Chalkfest

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Hundreds of talented artists have spent the last two days filling the sidewalks of the 400 Block with pastel drawings.

The public voted on their favorites and those prizes were awarded Sunday.

First place went to the brother and sister pair of Nathan and Samantha Hersil for their depiction of the Disney movie "Tangled."

They say the decision to draw Rapunzel and her friends was an easy one for their family.

"It's our favorite movie together, so Nathan bought it for me last year for my birthday, so it's kind of a movie as siblings we relate to and so we chose one that we actually enjoyed watching and we thought other people would enjoy too," said Samantha Hersil, who lives in Madison.

The siblings say they were out on the 400 Block at 5 a.m. Sunday morning in order to get it finished on time.
