Houston Art Car Parade

After spending Thanksgiving dinner in Austin, we drove down to Houston to spend time with my family. Little did I know, my brother Alan had to work on Saturday. But lucky us, we got to see some of his work…he had some 3D animations projected onto the walls of the George R. Brown Convention Center! It was during Houston’s Glowarama, the illuminated art car parade. (I probably have the most talented brother on the planet. Check out the kind of crazy stuff he gets to create on a regular basis).

The annual art car parade tried something new this year and did it at night. All of the crazy cars were lit up – some with rope lights, christmas lights, and even…fire(!) How cool is that? We also got to walk around Discovery Green Park, which I had never known existed. Who knew it used to be a concrete wasteland? I am impressed that Houston has dedicated the area to such an awesome park/community space. More urban green space!!

Aww, my parents and my niece and nephew. I love this!
