A Mooovelous Sight to Behold

Tonight at the Long Center there was a preview of the Cow Parade which has been held in 75 cities in 30 countries around the world.

Artists create the cows which will be displayed publicly around the city through October at which point 50 will be auctioned off for charity.
The Austin event is supporting Dell Children's Medical Center and the Superhero Kids Fund.

Also on display was Micheal Jackson's Thriller jacket which was recently purchased for $1.8 million by Austin philanthropist Milton Verret who arranged for $100k of the winning bid to go to the Superhero Kids Fund
The jacket is going to go around the world on tour to raise money for charities that help sick children.

  1. Aw, cute. We had something similar last summer with elephants in central London; loved finding them!

    Always happy to meet another Sherlock fan. Not long until season 2 now! :)

  2. I'm so excited for season 2!! but I'm sure we'll probably have to wait longer over here in the US for it. :/
