A trio of Mid City parking lots and spaces will be transformed Friday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. for the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance’s Park(ing) Day event.
Park(ing) Day started in San Francisco in 2005 by the design firm Rebar as a way to reimagine urban space and rethink the way streets are used. Baton Rouge got in on the event in 2013.
The parklets will be located at Baton Rouge General (3600 Florida Blvd.), Aladdin’s Lamp (2648 Government St.) and the Radio Bar (3079 Government St.). The event will also feature food trucks throughout the day at the three locations.
