PARK(ing) Day PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event that seeks to activate existing parking spaces as a site for creative experimentation, artistic expression and unscripted social interaction. The initiative recognizes the need for new approaches that help shape the urban landscape – by converting small segments of the automobile infrastructure into places for people. In 2017, Downtown Wichita organized the local PARK(ing) Day event with multiple groups and businesses participating. Prizes were awarded to the following organizations: Best Overall - Howerton+White and Vibrant ICT, Most Engaging - Howerton+White and Vibrant ICT, Uniquely Wichita - Liv+Work, Most Informative - Wichita Transit and Most Creative - The Garvey Center. 4 9 D O W N T O W N
