This 4th of July weekend downtown Tomahawk will see some color thanks to local artists.

It's called Color for the Cure, a sidewalk chalk coloring contest that raises money for the American Cancer Society relay for life of Tomahawk.

The community donates their time and money by voting for their favorite designs.

"Each business will sponsor a square individuals as well can for $10 a square and those that want to vote can vote on their preferred artist and it's a dollar for a vote and there's no limit to the amount that you can vote," says Liz Milender, executive director of Tomahawk Main Street.

Chalk drawings will be created today but will stick around the whole weekend so visitors can take their time choosing their favorites.

Prizes donated by local businesses will be awarded to the "best in show" winners after the holiday is over.

The event will also feature a brat fry and corn roast on Saturday.
