The festival allows graffiti and street artists to paint murals in the neighborhood and build large-scale pieces of art.

One sculpture was hard to miss as it made it’s debut on Friday — a 12 foot Tyrannosaurus rex with Mickey Mouse in its jaws.

It sits on top of the Ramble Hotel and is made entirely of cardboard.

“I’ve been waiting to make a dinosaur for a while, they’re extinct and I think using a material like cardboard to represent an instinct species fit,” said artist  Laurence Villieres.
