HOUSTON, TX – The Houston Art Car Parade is the world’s largest and oldest parade of its kind, but it came from humble beginnings.

It all started 27 years ago, with a parade of just 40 cars. This year, there will be 259, 100 of which, are new.

Tuned In’s Ky Meyer and Between the Lines’ Craig Hlavaty will MC the parade this year, and Eye Opener’s Maggie and NewsFix Voice GregO will ride in the parade. Make sure you stop by and say hello!

The parade starts at 2pm on Allen Parkway. Don’t let this event pass you by!
