Just for a day

Get ready for a new look in the Village. The parking area along the west wall of Uptown Espresso on 33rd Avenue & McGraw, transforms into a park-let in celebration of International PARK(ing) Day, according to Pat Craft of The Magnolia Chamber of Commerce.

The following is an explanation from the website, parkingday.org

“Citizen Activists around the globe turn parking spaces into mini-parks for a day to demonstrate the need for more urban green space. The annual event is organized online, but staged offline in dozens of cities on every continent around the world. It’s a demonstration of the power of social media and international collaborative activism… and a great way to have fun and relax.”

Look for tables and chairs roped off to enclose a space for all to enjoy. Music will keep you entertained at 11:30 a.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. Remember, it’s this Friday only. Revel in the respite.
