The Daily City's annual Cardboard Art Festival is one of Orlando's signature art events, and it returns for its fourth year beginning this weekend. Parties, performances, gallery viewings and special events for kids take place over the next two weekends in two large storefronts at the SoDo Shopping Center. This year brings a new Junior Gallery, where all the young artists' creations are displayed. The Interactive Cardboard Mural returns too, only this year it'll be in both the Junior and the Main galleries. Cardboard Hearts, a night dedicated to SoDo and Pulse at which you can participate in making and decorating memorials, takes place Thursday, July 28. From local students to Peruvian artist Romina Pezzia, the artists participating in the festival come from all over to share their cardboard creations with the public, and while some people might take the medium for granted, these artists certainly don't.

Opens 7 p.m. Friday, July 22 | various times through July 31 | SoDo Shopping Center, 80 W. Grant St. | | $5
