Two national events collide when Park(ing) Day and Welcome Week festivities kick-off in Anchorage, Alaska when two metered parking spaces in front of Anchorage’s City Hall are transformed into a City Hall Welcome Mat from 9 am to 6 pm.
Anchorage-ites are encouraged to come and hang out on in the temporarily commandeered public space, to have a cup of tea and meet local government officials and employees. All are welcome at City Hall! Park(ing) Day is an annual, global event on the third Friday of September, when citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces to Park(ing) spaces where all are invited and welcomed.
