Over the Independence Day weekend Reno hosts the All-American Barbecue Festival and the Firecracker 500 off road race. Bacardi showed up with a bus load of pretty girls decked out in mini dresses and shorts to promote their rum. Girls wearing hoods were promoting Wolfberry flavored rum. Some of the girls are models, others college students earning money to get through school. One told me she got three full days of work out of the festival. Pretty girls giving out free shots of rum is a great combination.
This event was sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Houston and held in Hermann Park. Much of the entertainment was paid for by the Japanese Consulate here in Houston.
These photos are from a small art festival held at Houston’s beautiful Elizabeth Baldwin Park.

This inaugural kite festival was held in conjunction with Hermann Park’s centennial. The giant fish kite does not fly well on its own, so it was assisted by the more efficient rainbow colored kite behind it.
Start with a big parking lot, add a bunch of award winning food trucks, craft beer, Texas skies and you have Haute Wheels. This year’s festival added a small Via Colori to the mix. It was 86F and humid on this first weekend of Spring.
