See Del Ray transformed as chalk murals are painted on the sidewalks along Mt. Vernon Ave., Del Ray's main street. Styled after an ancient Italian art form, the murals are painted by professional artists, children and parents, and visitors. Past events included live music, jugglers, and face painting. This event is free to the public - don't miss it!

La Bella Strada is a fundraising event for The Del Ray Montessori School (DRMS) and the community. La Bella Strada is organized entirely by community volunteers. 100% of the proceeds go to benefit DRMS and fund the showcasing of local artists. In 2018, for example, the festival funded the creation of a community garden on the grounds of the Del Ray Methodist Church.
