It's FREE, family friendly, and the parking is easy.  The Via Colori Art Festival happens each year in Sam Houston Park adjacent to downtown Houston. It's always the weekend just before Thanksgiving. Street artists are at their best creating chalk drawings on a couple of streets while onlookers get to watch in amazement. We went yesterday and here are some of my favorites.
I love this festival since it's for a good cause (The Center for Speech and Hearing) and it is still relaxed and just the right size for a festival. So many festivals get so outrageously expensive and crowded it's hardly worth the effort. This one is perfect.

                                             This one made my laugh!
                                          A Classic from a famous Japanese Artist
                                                     Starry Night by Van Gogh

                                                  Norman Rockwell entry

                                                    Created by one of our famous artist groups...unreal!

                                                          Watch out! Bam!
