Ever since man discovered the “corner-less rolling rock” he has been coming up with more ways to use the labor saving invention we now know as the wheel. In celebration of America’s fascination with all things wheeled, Lawrence holds this event to honor mankind’s large creative cerebral cortex, bipedal locomotion and opposable thumbs. This year the Lawrence Buskerfest is joining forces to seal the deal on this being one of the best, most Lawrence-y weekends of the year.

The Pre-Parade Final Friday Block pARTy is an event in which anyone can bring their car, bicycle or whatever, then paint them while eating popcorn and listening to live music. In this event, people can view other custom show vehicles from all over the United States and meet their builders. It all about celebrating creativity and honoring the human spirit with a sense of humor, and to have some good, clean fun on wheels.
