LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Big Four Lawn is now a bit more colorful thanks to artists from around the country. 

The street painting festival Via Colori was held in Louisville this year. 

Artists created their pieces right on the park's sidewalks. 

Organizers say the purpose of the event is to raise money for the more than 8,000 foster children in Kentucky. But they were also there to have some fun. 

"We have vendors and street painters from all over the country. We have Star Wars and music and bubbles, and everything else," said Dusty June Siravo, who helped coordinate the event. 

Via Colori has previously been held in Elizabethtown and Bardstown.

This was the 10th year for the event.
