What has been an unusually wet April gave way to a sunny, humid Sunday for the Houston Japan Festival.  There were lots of cosplayers and stands serving Japanese food.

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.

These photos are from my July, 2012 trip to Reno, Nevada. I was in town for a convention, but there was a major street festival right outside my hotel, so I skipped most of the presentations and when out taking photos. Most of these have not been previously published, a few were published in color but are now shown in black and white.

All morning and right up through the end of the parade rain was hanging in the air.  A few drops fell, but the Art Car Parade was spared.  The Cadillac commercial vehicle is often parked on 19th street in the Houston Heights.  Volunteers use roller skates to get around because the car staging is spread out for over a mile.

These photos are from the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade with around 300 entrants in the show.  It’s as much or more about people and craziness as it is about the elaborately decorated cars.  This is the first set, I will publish more tomorrow.
