You'll find all types of Chicago summer festivals throughout the city, stocked with live music, delicious food, locally brewed beer and vendors selling everything from T-shirts to screen-printed posters. But there was only one event this summer that featured chalk mural illusions spread across a stretch of pavement in Rogers Park. Last Saturday, the inaugural Chalk Howard Street brought artists from across the country to the far North Side neighborhood, where they spent part of the day creating colorful murals that attendees could take photos with.

If you missed out on the mind-blowing art at Chalk Howard Street, check out these photos from Saturday's festival and try to imagine the amazing images that artists might create at next summer's edition of the event.
