On the lovely, warm Saturday afternoon of September 9th, a legitimat New York freak show known as the Art Parade 2006 took place. Organized by Deitch Projects, Creative Time and Paper Magazine the second annual parade started at 4 pm from Houston, following West Broadway and ending on Grand Street.
After the success of the previous year's inaugural event, artists, performers and designers were invited in an open call to create floats, placards, portable sculptures, kites, performances and street spectacles.
Yours truly was there to cover the unfolding story and has the following visual dossier:
Don't you want to hug it? Steal it? Bearnapping!

Behold the awesome Bikenstein family.
Of course, there were also your mandatory chicks dressed as chicks.
