ArtCars have been cruising through south Minneapolis each summer for a quarter of a century now. This Saturday, a selection of funky vehicles will make their way around Lake Harriet for a colorful slow ride. Past years have featured a car covered in wine corks, a car with a giant lipstick on top, a car painted in the style of Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and a bike made to look like a canoe floating on a lake. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, folks will line up along the grassy spots on Roseway Road, as well as the paths lining the lake. Lawn chairs and picnicking are welcome.
