Houston Arts Alliance and Buffalo Bayou Partnership host "Afloat! A spectacular boat parade on Buffalo Bayou"


The event features dragon boats, yachts, canoes, kayaks and more. "Afloat!" is presented by the Houston Arts Alliance in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership as part of Transported + Renewed, a three-month celebration that focuses on Houston's playful and artful obsession with all forms of transportation.

Transported + Renewed is a major creative placemaking project that celebrates the centennial of the Port of Houston and the inauguration of the Houston METRO East End Light Rail Line by presenting a mix of community-based and contemporary art projects in the city's historic East End.

Update: Due to expected inclement weather, the event originally scheduled for Sept. 13 has been moved to Oct. 4 and will take place in conjunction with the Buffalo Bayou Shrimp Festival.
