What is the purpose of this event? 
The purpose of the event is to honor Stanley Papio and his rebel artistry and innovation and by doing so, we celebrate creativity, engineering, sculpture and kinetics- including but not limited to the bicycle.

How many categories? 
There are two categories: Art Bikes & Kinetic Art Sculpture Floats.  

What makes this event different than other kinetic parades? 
It's not a race, there's no water element, the rules are less strict, and we're allowing human movement and not just gears to qualify a Kinetic Sculpture.

Are there workshops for potential sculptors and artists? 
Check back later for 2020 workshop info.

Are there prizes? 
There will be awards and cash prizes at the award ceremony, immediately following the Parade. Click here to view awards.

How long is the Parade?  
1.5 miles. The Parade should take about 1 hour or less to complete.

What's the Parade route? 
The Parade starts at Custom House, heads up Front Street to Duval, then to Southard Street to the Amphitheater.

How many people can participate on a team? 
The more the merrier!

What are the most important rules or regulations for each Kinetic Sculpture or Art Bike? 
The Kinetic Sculptures are limited to roughly 7'6" wide and 11' tall. The goal is for all kinetic creations (including Art Bikes) to be human-powered (push or pedal) in propulsion and movement. In other words, you don't have to have a fully pedaled float!

Where can we park?
The Key West Amphitheater has some free parking in the adjacent lots, however biking and walking is greatly encouraged.
Maragaritaville Resort - near the parade start at the Custom House has a full house so parking is limited there too for the general public.
