Parking day

Today is “Parking day” ! What a smart participative idea. I’ll definitely have a look here in SF, must be a good candidate city..

It all happened in a Parking space :

a wedding ceremony
a productive landscape
a free head & neck massage
a free worm composting demo
a pedal powered smoothie
a solar panel demonstration
a DIY lemonade stand
a public park
a free health clinic
an ecology center
a public back porch
an urban farming display
a glass recycling center
an interactive sculpture
a political campaign
an outdoor classroom
a fi ngerpainting studio
a public kiddie pool
a public safety demonstration
a  national park
  a free bicycle repair shop
a memorial glen
a croquet tournament
a public dog park
a PARKcycle
a notebook to elected offi cials
a chess tournament
an open poetry reading
a barbecue
a lawn bowling course
a marshland
an art gallery
a pirates’ cove
a hula
a dinner party
a public reading room
a public beach
a public picnic
a chicken coop
and your __

It is an annual, worldwide event where artists, activists, and citizens independently (but simultaneously) turn metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks and other spaces for people to enjoy. PARK(ing) Day is a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.

Legal? maybe not always but is it really harmful? that’s a debate but meanwhile I’m going to enjoy it in SF.
