The International Street Art Festival brought colour and life to Cambridge's downtown Galt this past weekend.

Graffiti and chalk artists transformed downtown Galt into colourful masterpiece this year as some of the artists have made five permanent installations around downtown instead of temporary works on canvas, like last summer.

There was also a chalk art component to the festival that the public could take part in. "Chalk the Walk 150" is a 150-foot chalk art project featuring chalk drawings with a historical twist to celebrate Canada's 150.

Artists didn't have to worry about the rain this year as it was sunny and warm this past weekend. (Jackie Sharkey/CBC)
