PARK(ing) Day is back in Edmonton

The international movement known as PARK(ing) Day is back in downtown Edmonton Friday afternoon.

The premise is simple: for one afternoon only, parking stalls are turned into miniature parks for people to enjoy.

Edmonton's PARK(ing) Day is happening on 101A Ave between 96 and 97 Streets, from noon to 6 p.m.

In addition to the tiny parks, the city is also chipping in, with art, improv and karaoke.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event. Edmonton's first happened in 2014, and was hosted by artist Chelsea Boos from the Drawing Room.
