minneapolis art car show 2006
2006.07.22 17.12Upon learning about the Minneapolis Art Car Parade the day before, I immediately decided that my attendance would be mandatory. Unlike previous Houston Art Car Parades that I've seen, this parade's route does not loop back to the beginning. I shot this using my trusty Sony DSC-S75 point and shoot. The arts cars each did The Wave as they drove up the street, looping up and down so that spectators on either side of the road could enjoy the weirdness. My favorite car was The Sofa Car. The guy was driving his sofa with what appeared to be a remote control. The Yellow Submarine Car also made an appearance. That guy has been in every art car parade I've ever seen. There's a couple shots below of Galactic Pizza and their Galactic Pizza Delivery Car. The Animal Cruelty truck for DefendingFarmAnimals.org was particularly pleasant as they renounced Minnesota's treatment of livestock. Little kids had confused looks. Parents patted them on their heads. Good times.
