Houston Art Car Festival

I've never been to the Houston Art Car Festival.

This unique parade of over 250 cars-turned-mobile-art is one of the Orange Show's biggest draws. The Art Car Festival began in 1984 and has become an outreach to the community to send the message that art is for everyone and is an integral part of our life and community. And it's just plain fun!

This year's parade will take place on May 9 on Allen Parkway between Taft and Downtown. The parade begins at 1pm on Saturday. If you want a sneak peek at some of this year's new mobile art, come to Discovery Green (1500 McKinney) on Friday, May 8 at 6pm. You can see art car film on the main stage and enjoy live music, art and entertainment throughout the park. Though the time to enter an art car in the parade has passed, there is still time to volunteer in the fun family event. And if you can't make it to the sneak preview, you can still check out photos from last year's parade . It looks like a fun time for all ages. Both the parade and the sneak preview are free!

That I'd like to see.
