BELMAR, NJ — The borough's downtown will turn into an outdoor art gallery and artisan fair, complete with roving musicians and performers, during tomorrow's Artwalk, to be held from noon to 4 p.m.

Stretching from Fifth through 13th Avenue along Main Street, the popular event will showcase the talent of more than 60 local artists, musicians and participating businesses in the community. An interactive area for children, walking mural tour and a secret word search prize drawing will be featured.

New additions to this year’s event include a 3-D chalk art demonstration in Pyanoe Plaza and an expanded “Artists’ Row” at 12th Avenue and Main Street, where nearly 30 artisans and artists will provide attendees with an opportunity to browse and buy.

The center is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and River Road. Also, the center recently opened its artisan store, featuring creations from many of the vendors who attend its spring and summer markets.
