HOUSTON — The 32nd Annual Houston Art Car gets underway this weekend, but you can still get a sneak peek at some of the funkiest rides in the Bayou City before they roll through downtown H-town on Saturday.
Houstonians took part in a preview at George R. Brown Convention Center on Thursday afternoon, giving Patch readers a chance to see some of the unique creativity that goes into this annual event.
