Works of art on wheels rolled through Downtown Houston. However a little something is looming over the 24th annual Art Car Parade. This could be the last year the event is free. “That would be tragic” says one Houstonian. The couple hundred cars in costume are so unique people come from all over the world to check it out. “It’s great. It’s one of the great cultural things that people come to Houston for. A lot of people fly in for this thing” says one man in the crowd.
An estimated 300,000 people enjoyed the parade for free but in this economy donations are down. So next year’s frilly function could come with a fee
It’s a little surprising the parade hasn’t already gone the way of the International Festival.
