Artists, builders, assemblers and aficionado’s of the wild and wacky won’t want to miss the 3rd Annual Stanley Papio Kinetic Parade, presented by the Key West Art & Historical Society with events set for May 4-6, 2018 in Old Town Key West. Participants and spectators alike revel in the family-friendly, art-inspired, human-powered, mobile sculpture and art-bike parade (think art with parts that move) created in honor of the late Florida Keys rebel folk artist Stanley Papio.

Want to participate? Small and simple or elegantly engineered, young or old, teams of 1-100 are welcome to enter. Human Powered Kinetic Sculpture Floats and Art Bikes can be simple, whimsical, futuristic, or fantastical—the only requirement is that they are physically moved by you (and/or a teammate(s)). Recycling is highly encouraged, wit and humor loudly applauded. Cash prizes will be awarded for various categories.

Just want to watch? The parade, accompanied by a Grand Marshal and marching band, will begin to wind its way from the Custom House Museum and over to Duval Street at 5:00pm on Saturday, May 5 and wrap up with a post-parade party and concert. Visit www.papiokineticparade.com for updates on 2018 registration, workshops, prizes, and parties.

Supported in part by the State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, The Helmerich Trust, and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.  Your Museums.  Your Community.  It takes an Island.
