Art Car Parade 2009 Pictures: Loads of Pix

Houston gets my love in large part due to the annual Art Car Parade. Photo websites Flickr, Photobucket and Picassa all get flooded with great pictures of the event. My shots weren't great, but lots of locals took some great ones. Below are some of my favorites. B.S. Houston Art Blog posted some great panoramic shots of the parade by local photographer Chuy Benitez.

Lastly, I got to say I agree with NeoHouston,"...the show was great, but if they were going to change one thing, I’d have the parade somewhere between late March and mid April — or have it earlier / later in the day if it’s going to be held in May..." The heat drained me of my enthusiasm for the parade. Make it just a bit earier in the year and I think loads of people would be thankful.

Now, on with the show.
