Wheels of Wonderland

The afternoon began at the Pecan Street Fair – Central Texas’ largest arts + crafts fair. Amazing how much inspiration and ideas can be found at an event like this:

Reminded me of a hybrid of the Eugene Celebration, the Street Fair at UO, Portland’s First Thursday and Portland’s Last Thursday.

Just around the corner was Wheels of Wonderland, put on by Austin Bike Zoo. Austin Bike Zoo is self-described as this: “The Austin Bike Zoo Human Powered Puppetry began with the collaborative efforts of artists, bicycle builders, teachers and like minded folks.”

Yup. And they came together to put on a production of Alice in Wonderland. Brilliant:

As we were heading back to the car, we saw a building with a ton of people, some togas and architecture looking things, so we went inside to see what it was. Turns out it was a public performance and installation of The 24 Hour Roman Reconstruction. Crazy. Awesome. Crazy awesome:
