Neighbors chalk up positive messages on Lancaster sidewalks

The kids say they regularly create the sidewalk art in the summer, but they wanted to spread cheer sooner with the coronavirus pandemic.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — People in Western New York are staying positive and connected amid this coronavirus pandemic.

Neighbors out in Lancaster were out drawing on the sidewalks in chalk on Saturday afternoon.

Especially since it was sunny and people might be out walking, these neighbors thought they would leave a positive message or a picture for people to look at as they passed by.

"We wanted to spread positive messages, because right now everybody's kind of like sad, and it's like a hard time," Ryann O'Carroll said. "So most people are going on walks, so we just wanted them to be able to read positive messages."

The kids say they regularly create the sidewalk art in the summer, but they wanted to spread cheer sooner. 

They also hope this encourages more people to get out and brighten up the community.
