Lawrence's Art Tougeau began in 1997 as an art car parade. Each year, it has grown a little bigger, attracting participants from as far away as Boston and Houston. The pre-parade block party starts Friday at 5 p.m. (surrounded by Final Friday art openings and events) at Ninth Street and New Hampshire. The parade today begins at noon at 11th Street and New Hampshire, running slowly south through downtown, until circling back to 10th Street, where the post-parade party goes from 2 to 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
