[Trailer] Park[ing] Day & Night + Pie

September 2010

PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement.  The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!

The Polish Hill [Trailer] Park[ing] Day and Night was a collaboration between The Caravan Collective and the lovely folks of Lili Coffee Shop featuring friends from, Copacetic Comics Company, Mind Cure Records, the music of Robin Vote and our delicious pies a la mode!

One of the Polish Hill neighbors brought a platter of deliciously deviled and locally sourced eggs.

The Jam!  There was an accordionist, a trumpeter, a bassist and a few dancing kids.

Two pie girls- one with a much lighter hairdo these days.

As the pie sold out, Erin turned into a ghost.  That was the end of the pie participation at [Trailer] Park[ing] Day/Night.
