Countdown to Parade Day:

Main Street Drag 2013

Bringing the Parade to the People!

As part of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art's educational outreach program, the Main Street Drag brings the parade to the people and allows for those who may not have the opportunity to experience the Houston Art Car Parade a way to see some of the participating cars and interact with the artists. This year we have divided the Main Street Drag into three separate routes, each with approximately 10-15 cars. The routes will stop by 4-5 different places and spend approximately 30-45 minutes per location.

All routes will depart Memorial Park (the Parking Lot on N. Picnic Lane) at 8:30am, and will meet back up at Natachee's Supper 'N Punch (3622 Main Street) at around 1:15pm.All press inquiries should be sent to or 832-964-9932.
