Call for Proposals: Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade

thanksgiving parade 2015 houston

Houston’s HEB Thanksgiving Day Parade has recently announced its Call for Artist Proposals. They’re looking for parade entries that “convey a spirit that is uniquely Houston.” This year’s theme is, scintillatingly, “Houston on Parade.”

In the past two years, the parade has included cornucopias of skateboarding vegetables and a larger-than-life tribute to Third Ward’s Flower Man, so artists, get your juices flowing! The call is open to Houston-based individual artists, artist teams and organizations, and consists of a $13,000 budget per float. However: the finished float will be the property of the City of Houston, so when the Whitney comes a-calling, they can’t have your parade float.

Proposals are due September 11th and will once again be juried by Diane Barber. For more information, go here.
