Make your mark on Washington Street July 18 at the Springfield Art Association’s Third Annual Paint the Street Fest, held 2-10 p.m., between Fourth and Seventh streets. Individuals and community groups are invited to purchase six-foot by six-foot squares of street to paint anything they desire. The SAA will provide all necessary painting supplies including paint, brushes, sponges and a goody bag. Artists are encouraged to bring stencils, knee pads, pop-up tents and anything else they may desire to complete their masterpieces. Live musical entertainment will keep the atmosphere lively and upbeat throughout the day. Other festival offerings include a children’s tent featuring a kite-making station, food vendors and more. Squares can be purchased in advance at $30 per square, or for $35 per square the day of the event. For more information about Paint the Street Fest, visit
