Off the Clock: Columbia Participates in PARKing Day

Sep 18, 2015

The City of Columbia participated in Parking Day for the second year in a row. The idea for Parking Day was started in 2005 in San Francisco and has since turned into an international event. GetAbout Columbia Outreach Coordinator Janet Godon said this event was about interaction more than anything else. Multiple businesses took place in the event downtown. An arts and crafts tent, bocce court, park benches and live music were all available for entertainment. 

A bocce field was set up in downtown Columbia on Friday, Sep. 18, 2015. It was one of the attractions available for people taking place in PARKing day.
Corissa Ray of Bluestem took worked on a collage on Friday, Sep. 18, 2015. Bluestem set up an arts and craft tent for people walking by or who were partaking in PARKing day.
