One of Houston’s wackiest traditions is back for another year! The 29th Annual Houston Art Car Parade Weekend brings three days of fun events and over 250 art cars to the city. The weekend kicks off with the Art Car Ball. Attendees dress in their craziest costumes and enjoy a night of drinks, food, music, and an early viewing of some of the parade cars. Saturday is the main event — the Art Car Parade! Hundreds of extravagantly decorated cars, bikes, and skaters will drive down Smith Street in Houston’s largest free public event. To cap off the weekend, the winners of the parade will be awarded at a special brunch ceremony Sunday.
