Via Colori Festival W/Video: Where You Can Write All Over the Street and Not Get in Trouble

Great weather graced the seventh annual Via Colori Street Painting Festival this past weekend as more than 240 artists arrived to create a massive mural while passersby watched their steps, making sure they didn't destroy genius in the making.

The mural, depicting the Houston downtown skyline, was just one of the attractions at the free festival that also offered 15 local bands and food and drink vendors. The effort benefited The Center for Hearing and Speech, a non-profit concerned with hearing education and needs.

And, we took some video!
