The community Mosaic Street Painting Festival has been postponed to Monday due to tomorrow’s rainy forecast, East End Arts executive director Patricia Snyder said this evening.
Rain is likely tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service. The forecast calls for gusty winds and rain, mainly in the morning. But wet pavement doesn’t make a good canvas for chalk art masterpieces
Monday’s forecast is for cloudy skies with only a slight chance of rain. Temperatures should be pleasant with highs in the upper 60s, according to the weather service.
The festival will run from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday.
In addition to chalk art, the festival features vendors and live music. Now in its 22nd year, the street painting festival is a popular event that typically draws more than 5,000 visitors to downtown Riverhead, according to organizers.
