Art and food will converge at the 12th annual Taste of Downtown planned for September 19 in Paso Robles.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. participants can sample the creations of more than 30 local restaurants, a brewery, wineries, ice cream shops and coffee houses.
Tickets are $25, with proceeds benefitting the Paso Robles Main Street Association's free holiday events.
The same day, ticket holders can also experience the Paso Robles Art Association's eight annual Arte de Tiza, a chalk-art celebration with murals created by area artists on the sidewalk of Pine Street between 11th and 12th streets in downtown.
[From PRAA Press Release: Arte de Tiza is sponsored by the Paso Robles Art Association, Rabobank, Santa Lucia Bank, First Bank of San Luis Obispo, Optimist Club of Paso Robles, and WalMart.
