200809artparade.jpgBad news, art nerds. The weather forecast for tomorrow is so bad that this year's Art Parade—always an eye-popping explosion of bizarre costumes, imaginative floats, and paper mache—has been canceled. A spokesperson for Deitch Projects, which puts on the annual event, tells us that normally the parade is "rain or shine, but the forecast is so bad and they're predicting such high winds we have to cancel." Deitch is discussing the possibility of getting a parade permit for next spring instead. In the meantime, savor our photos from last year and try not to dwell on what Hanna hath taken away. (Like the Ferris Bueller float!)
