BIDDEFORD — Organizers have postponed the 7th annual Chalk on the Walk Festival due to damp weather. 

The festival is hosted annually by the downtown revitalization nonprofit organization Heart of Biddeford. It draws artists to the city to create chalk drawings up and down Main Street and closes off city square for children and families to create a chalk mural. 

This year’s event included a 5K road race that was held this morning despite the weather. 

The festival has been rescheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1.
