Story and All Photos By Gail

Pimp My Piragua is a mobile public art project that commemorates the innovations of Latinx street vendors, transforming a traditional pushcart for selling shaved ice (piraguas) into a hyper-customized tricycle pushcart.

Designed by artist Miguel Luciano, Pimp My Piraguas features a high-powered sound system, flat screen monitors, and LED underbody lights — all while still fully functional as a piragua cart.
