Not content material to relaxation on its laurels after its iconic Art Car Parade, the Orange Show for Visionary Art is placing a spin on the artsy-automotive occasion with a brand new pageant and parade. The Orange Show and Houston Parks Board are teaming up for Houston’s first Art Bike Festival on Saturday, May 21.
The vibrant and free fest celebrates the Bayou City’s parks and trails, and naturally, artwork and bikes. Locals are inspired to register on-line by May 15 to participate within the parade.
Things kick off at 9 am at MacGregor Park (5225 Calhoun Rd.), with the parade rolling out at 10 am, with new members becoming a member of greater than 100 HISD college students on their decked-out rides.
At round midday, the parade route will cycle via Brays Bayou Greenway from MacGregor Park to Smither Park (2441 Munger St. ). A post-parade occasion at Smither Park together with awards, actions, and loads of artwork, will happen round 2 pm.
This new bike pageant comes on the heels of a wildly widespread, current Art Car Parade, which noticed its first in-person occasion since 2019 because of the pandemic. The thirty fifth anniversary parade noticed tens of hundreds of locals lining up downtown streets and Allen Parkway to get a glimpse of the 250 Art Cars, theme automobiles, and the charismatic grand marshal, Houston’s hip-hop icon Bun B.
