Art Car Parade

Houston held its 31st Annual Art Car Parade last Saturday, with cars traveling Allen Parkway. This is Houston’s largest free public event! More than 250 rolling works of art turned concrete into a colorful canvas to celebrate the artist in everyone! Mobile masterpieces motored in and near downtown in the world’s oldest and largest Art Car Parade.

The Parade Marshall this year was Mayor Sylvester Turner.

Entries were judged Sunday evening.

Community groups, public and private schools, and professional organizations have become regular participants. Inspired by what they see, spectators create art cars of their own and often become future participants. And as the parade grows, attracting more and more participants, the complexity and quality of the entries increases.
