A number of parking stalls in downtown Edmonton will be transformed into creative spaces Friday for PARK(ing) Day.

The stalls will become artistic displays, interactive installations and more.

"PARK(ing) Day is a powerful way for us to re-imagine how we use our public space,” said David Holdsworth, senior planner with Urban Renewal in a written release. “As we densify and grow our city toward two million people, the way we use public space becomes increasingly important."

PARK(ing) Day runs from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, on 107 Street between Jasper Avenue and 102 Avenue.

The event is celebrated around the world, and began in San Francisco in 2005.
