KSTP's Tom Durian spoke with Jan Elftmann, the director of ArtCar Minnesota, about The ArtCar Parade taking place this evening around Lake Harriet. This year marks ArtCar Parade's 20th anniversary. There will be ArtCars, ArtBiks, and one Couchmobile in the lineup.

"ArtCars are a canvass. The car becomes a piece of art, a giant sculpture or a painting. A lot of people in Minnesota, about 99%, drive their ArtCars on a daily basis," Elftmann said.

The lineup begins at 6 p.m. at the Lyndale Park Rose Garden.
