Making our communities attractive is essential. There is something to be said for adding creative designs to buildings or streets and this year, Saco has knocked it out of the park with their design on their Main Street Crosswalk.

You never know, maybe this beautiful art will lure James Corden in and he will do a Crosswalk musical? Better yet, we all can put together our very own Crosswalk Musical to christen the crosswalk!

This crosswalk is painted with colorful buoys which is very suitable for our state!

Volunteers showed up, grabbed paintbrushes, and got to work!

According to the Guardian, there are many places around the world that have caught onto this trend. There are a couple reasons why community members decorate there crosswalks, either just to spruce up the street, have a competition or contest, or to make a statement.

In China, a newly married couple ran across the crosswalk after the ceremony because it was so beautifully decorated like a heart for Valentine's Day.

In Israel, a crosswalk was decorated as a rainbow to encourage awareness for other Gay Pride Day.

Maine Paint sponsored the newly decorated crosswalk.

You can also check out Rapid Rays to see the lobster buoys!

Because this is the first decorated crosswalk, Saco wants to ask what design you want to see next?

Let's continue to keep our cities beautiful and full of art and creativity!
