Art cars, bikes on parade in Minneapolis
Nearly 50 colorful cars, bicycles and a "couch-mobile" descended on Lake Harriet in Minneapolis Saturday evening for the 18th Annual ArtCar + ArtBike Parade. [Slide show by Aaron Hays and more photos by Pamela Diedrich below.]
An event like none other, hundreds of people gathered near the Lyndale Park Rose Gardens to relax and enjoy the art. For some, it is an opportunity to freely express their individuality through creation. For others, it's a chance to enjoy the sunshine and see something unique. One person who stopped to watch described it as something like a "Harley convention." Tom Carlson, the parade emcee, said the ArtCar community is tight knit, and held together by a "connection of nice-minded artists." The parade started near the rose garden at 6 p.m. and made a loop around the lake.
