Coming this weekend: ArtoCade 2014 in Trinidad

Posted By on Mon, Sep 8, 2014 at 3:02 PM

Last year's very first ArtoCade in Trinidad sure got off to a good start. This celebration of art cars — "if you can't drive it, it's a float" — included one covered in eyes, another that looked as if it was pulled from Neptune's treasure chest, one shaped like a phone, and another encased in an inflatable hog suit.

All of these art cars will return for 2014, and then some, for the second iteration of ArtoCade, happening this weekend. The main event, the parade, takes place Saturday at noon, but festivities kick off Friday night with auto-themed art shows at local galleries and a party where you can meet the "cartists." Saturday night offers the Cardango, a "dance/gala/circus/party" for adults and Sunday sobers up with a send-off breakfast.

Sound like fun? Find more details after the jump, and in the meantime, here's some of what you'll see:
