More MOSE Events

The Mayor’s Office of Special Events not only produces timeless, family focused events, the office permits and partners with other remarkable events in the city. The Art Car Parade celebrated their 30th anniversary in April 2017 and the Mayor’s Office of Special Events, along with our friends at KTRK/ABC13 Houston were there to capture the entire event! Civic celebration has been a major contributor in helping to establish a sense of community in the most diverse city in the nation. We hope you and your family take full advantage of the multitude of parades, festivals, fun runs and so much more in the greatest city in the world, Houston Texas!
