Art Car Parade

The Houston Art Car Parade is an annual occurrence that takes place literally down the street from my house.  It’s been going on since 1988 and I have lived here for 5 years but have never seen it.  So this year I told Alan that it was a must for us to go, after all it is 1) The Nation’s Largest Art Car Parade 2) Attracts 250+ vehicles and other entries from 23 states along with Canada and Mexico  3)Attracts a  live audience of some 250,000 people.   With all this being said, let me tell you, it was definitely a site & something I was very happy I got to experience first hand.
Here are some of my favorites!
