One of the most beloved and well-known events in the city of Houston is the annual Houston Art Car Parade. Started by a commune of local artists in the 1980s, the Art Car Parade has evolved into a city-wide project representative of the creativity and joie de vivre of the Bayou City and has drawn in participants from all walks of life and of all ages.
The 36th Annual Art Car Parade will take place on Saturday, April 15, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The largest celebration of its kind, the parade will feature more than 250 vehicle works of art constructed by HISD students and staff, professional organizations, youth groups, and other creative Houstonian artists. The parade begins at Allen Parkway and Bagby Street and ends at Allen Parkway and Taft Street.
