Park(ing) Day Preview

Excitement is building for today’s Park(ing) Day.  I probably will be a couple of hours late with the normal morning postings while I help set up our space on Federal Street (street address 11555 National Boulevard.)  The day will end with a couple of parties for participants (listed after the posters.) but for now get a preview of some of the originality that’s going to be on display tomorrow.
