The Houston Art Parade is a celebration of all things creative and wild on wheels. This parade is not your typical parade of marching bands and floats. Instead, it features art cars that are decked out in crazy and elaborate designs. Imagine a car transformed into a giant hot dog or a mobile sculpture with moving parts. These art cars are truly a sight to behold and will make your heart skip a beat.

You might be thinking, “Why would I go to an art car parade?” Well, let me give you three fun facts that will make you want to book your tickets ASAP.

The art car parade showcases marvels of creativity and engineering like this one.
  1. Did you know that the Houston Art Parade is the oldest and largest art car parade in the world? That’s right! It started in 1988 and has been going strong ever since.

The fruit mobile speaks for itself, please don’t eat it.

As famous pop star Katy Perry once said, “Art is the pulse of our culture.” And what better way to experience art than by attending the Houston Art Parade?

We spoke with art car owner, Bill, who said, “The Houston Art Parade is an event unlike any other. It’s a chance for artists to showcase their creativity in a fun and whimsical way. And it’s a chance for people to experience art in a way they never have before.”
