Lawrence’s Hometown Wheeled-Art Parade
In celebration of America’s fascination with all things wheeled, Lawrence holds the Art Tougeau Parade to honor mankind’s large creative cerebral cortex, bipedal locomotion, and opposable thumbs. The result is an all-inclusive event symbolic of humanity’s need for self-expression in the medium of all things wheeled. Art Tougeau joins forces with the Lawrence Busker Festival to make an incredible event for the community. The parade begins around noon on Saturday, May 27, and lasts about an hour. The parade starts and ends at the Lawrence Arts Center (940 New Hampshire). The route will be: Lawrence Arts Center – 11th Street – Massachusetts Street – 7th Street – New Hampshire St – Lawrence Arts Center.
Start the festivities early at the Art Tougeau pre-parade pARTy on Friday, May 26. From 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM on the 900 block of New Hampshire. Enjoy live music, art cars on display, food trucks and beverages, Buskers, steamroller printing and more! Learn more>
