A.P.E. Volunteers & the Art Car Parade 2013

May 11th was Houston's 26th annual art car parade and the Aldine Project Experience (APE) teens were part of the festivities. Our teen volunteers worked for weeks to create their own book cart. They also cut out many cardboard cars and trucks for children to decorate. On the day of the parade they set up the library's spot in the "Kid's Zone," asked kids to join in the craft, and helped them create their own little art cars. The craft was so popular that we ran out of cars before the parade even started. It was a great event and the teens were thrilled to be part of it.
