BILLINGS - Businesses have come together for four days of events and sales for Downtown Crazy Days.

Downtown Chalk Walk was part of the celebration on Friday and Saturday.

Families and groups put down their best temporary art on the three by three foot squares.

The businesses invited artists to do the art in front of their buildings.

It's a chance to share their talents in the festive atmosphere.

"People just like to feel happy," said Laressa Manning, British School of Jakarta art teacher. "That's the most important thing. They enjoy going outside and seeing what other people are working on and it makes them happy. That's why I have all the silliness and the bright colors and the doughnut."

"Just met the artist this morning," said Janese Carstens, Global Village Executive Director. "So it's a fun new connection in the community. I love the colors and the brightness and the cheerfulness that she's bringing to the sidewalk here."
