Parking Day 2008 by sv johnson on Flickr.

PARK(ing) Day is nearly here! And, we’re taking over some parking spaces to create a fun and interactive parklet. We plan to have board games, street furniture, and a bike repair station set up right in the heart of Downtown Seattle.

We’d love to see you! Drop by for coffee, games, people watching, and good company. And, if you’ve got a talent to share or time to help facilitate, we’d like that too. Our bike repair station is intended to serve simple fixes like changing tires. If you think you can help with that or have any questions/ideas, let us know by sending us an e-mail.

You’ll find us on the west side of First Avenue between Stewart St and Virginia St (map). Drop by on September 19th any time between 9am and 3pm. Feel free to to add this event from our calendar (and check out other upcoming events of interest).

See you at the parklet!
