Humboldt, Iowa — Bringing Back the Avenue is sponsoring an event Thursday, that will aim to have parents, children and other come together to paint rocks!

The event will be at Parley Finch Plaza in Downtown Humboldt. It will run from 5-7 p.m.

Downtown businesses will have tables with rocks, paint and other supplies.

When your rock is completed, you are asked to hide it. If you find one from the Thursday event, you are asked to share it on Facebook — either the Painted Rocks Humboldt page or the Bringing Back the Avenue page — with the hashtag “#paintedrockshumboldt.”

Carrie Spellmeyer was the originator of the Facebook group, which began in July. Spellmeyer told KHBT in an earlier piece that she was “shocked” at the amount of interest in painting rocks.
