ST. JACK'S DAY
For those of you not familiar with the story ...
Jack Updyke became the Patron Saint of Life on Wheels because he comes to the aid of, and works miracles (large and small) for wheeled artists, skaters, scooters, and cyles all around Houston. Instead of waiting for him to slip off this mortal coil to honor him, we celebrate his gifts and company each year on his birthday, February 14th!
A party of art cars, artcar artists, Houston skaters, scooters, cycles, and other wheeled modes of transportation.
COME JOIN THE FUN!
