Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade
The second annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade kicks off at noon on Saturday, May 6th, but the festivities can be enjoyed Friday through Sunday. The parade involves participants and spectators alike reveling in family-friendly, art-inspired, human-powered, mobile sculpture and art-bike creations (think art with parts that move) created in honor of the late Florida Keys rebel folk artist Stanley Papio.
Teams build these human powered vehicles and must complete a course that goes over land and various other obstacles. Teams are then scored on how fast they complete the course, how well/interesting their craft is put together, the “funness” of their theme/costumes, and numerous other qualities.
We have derived our Kinetic Sculpture event, from others like it, to fit our art loving, family friendly and bicycle loving town.
You can find the Kinetic Sculpture & Art Bike Parade schedule on their website: papioskineticparade.com
