Photos: 63 Reasons Why We Loved Denver Chalk Art Festival 2015

The Denver Chalk Art Festival is one of our favorite local events — a great way to kick off the summer that just happens to be free.

This year's gathering in Larimer Square was no exception — although the artists had to face some Mother Nature-related adversity.

On Saturday, intermittent rain did no favors.

By midday on Sunday, however, the work of the indefatigable chalkers — a mix of professionals, students and inspired enthusiasts — seemed no worse for the weather.

Did we get a photo of your favorite? If not, it certainly wasn't for a lack of trying, as you can see by the following gallery, which features a whopping 63 images.
