Event Review: 26th Annual Houston Art Car Parade
Austin may be the weird capital of Texas, but Houston can hold it's own in the odd department. Take the Annual Houston Art Car Parade, for example, which is hosted by the Orange Show (pretty awesomely odd in it's own right). People from all over the city transform their old volkswagon Beetles, vans, bicycles, and more into works of art and drive them down the streets of Houston for us all to admire. You'll likely see a car with a giant rabbit on top, one that looks like a guitar, various vehicles with things glued to them, people in costumes on roller skates, and more theme cars than you could count. I dream of someday having my own artfully decorated car in the parade, but in the mean time I will stand on the side of the street, wave and cheer, ooh and ahh over the creations of my fellow Houstonians and bask in the glow of the wonderful weirdness of my city. It's usually hot in Houston during the middle of May, so bring some sunscreen. There will be at least one area with vendors selling drinks and snacks, with port-a-potties near by. Bring the kids, and the video camera, because your out of town friends are never going to believe it unless you show them!
