A whimsical, interactive Alice in Wonderland sculpture is now on display at Evelyn’s Park in Bellaire, Texas. A neighborhood hit hard by Hurricane Harvey, as mentioned in the YouTube video below by KHOU 11, is now home to one of the most beloved scenes in “Alice in Wonderland.” Visitors can experience Alice’s tea party for themselves.

According to an article by Houstonia, the sculpture titled Move One Place On was created by Houstonian Bridgette Mongeon and installed on April 9 and 10 in Evelyn’s Park.

“The 24-foot long sculpture features Alice’s tea party, including a 10-foot table with three benches that allow additional guests to sit and join the fun,” shares Houstonia.com.

All the beloved characters you grew up with can be found joining in the fun for a spot of tea. These include… “the Dormouse, a built-in chessboard, a 9-foot Mad Hatter (his toppling chair also features a lion, unicorn, and flamingos), the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, and of course, Alice.” No expense was sparred as Mongeon also included 150 whimsical wonderland features among the tea party in honor of the 150th anniversary of the children’s classic “Alice in Wonderland.”

The inspiration behind Mongeon’s Move One Place On, was fashioned after the beloved Alice in Wonderland sculpture located in New York’s Central Park. Her “journey in the rabbit hole” started six years ago as she was creating another sculpture of Evelyn Rubenstein for the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish community, shares her website. 

The party isn’t complete until you take a seat at the surreal gathering, no reservations needed. For more about this intriguing sculpture and tips on how to find the hidden treasures among the party be sure to visit  alicesculpture.com.
