Today is PARK Day when artists, designers, and fun-lovers transform metered parking spots into mini-parks all over the world! The gentlemen in the above photo are in Wellington, NZ!

PARK Day was originally created by San Francisco art and design collective, Rebar in 2005 as a way of drawing attention to the way urban public space is used. In 2005, their website notes, "up to 70% of San Francisco’s downtown outdoor space is dedicated to the vehicle."

Portland’s Brian T. Wilson and his new Tribute Gallery get in on the game with a spot at NW Broadway & NW Flanders from 9-5 today. I understand he needs a picnic blanket.
