Park(ing) Day, the annual celebration that turns parking spaces around the world into parks, is back in full force this year. Happening Sept. 17, the event is being sponsored by Ford Mobility Company-backed Spin, which has even offered funding to help transform spaces into parks for one day.

Get all the details, including the celebration’s history, a downloadable manual, and details about promoting and having fun with parking, here.  There’s even a gallery of past parking space park installations if you’d like a little inspiration.
