Wednesday evening, instillation crews worked through the night to deliver six new art Cows to the downtown area.

The second wave of Cow Parade Austin cows were installed at the Driskill Hotel, the Hilton Downtown, the Bob Bullock Museum, the Paggi House Restaurant, Dell Children’s Hospital and Austin Bergstrom International Airport.

The cows are decorated by local artists to raise money for the SuperHero Kids fund of the Blood Disorder and Cancer Center of Dell Children’s Medical Center.

This is the Rodeo Austin cow is delivered at The Bob Bullock Texas Museum.

These cows weigh 125 pounds and will sell for $7,500 - $10,000 to benefit SuperHero Kids
