Don’t worry, the rain will be gone by 4 p.m., so plan to come on out to enjoy a fun-filled evening in the hear of Old North St. Louis as we celebrate two great events:
From 4- 6 p.m., several metered parking spaces near the intersection of St. Louis Avenue & N. 14th Street will be temporarily converted to mini parks or community gathering spots as Old North celebrates PARK(ing) Day. This year marks the first time Old North will be participating in the annual, worldwide event where artists, designers, and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. Parking spaces will be adopted and transformed for a few hours by Jamaica Ray, Ye Ole Haunt, La Mancha Coffeehouse, and the 14th Street Artist Community. The Divoll branch of St. Louis Public Library will also utilize a space for a banned books exhibit. Come on by to see how these spaces take shape!
Be sure to share your plans to attend by visiting the Old North PARK(ing) Day Facebook event page by clicking HERE.
The Post-Dispatch took note of Old North’s plans for PARK(ing) Day in their article on the various PARK(ing) Day events that will be taking place in St. Louis. That article can be found online at STL Today by clicking HERE.
