Absolutely nothing!  Participants report spending everything from $0 to several hundred dollars on the materials for installations in their spots, with most on the lower end of the scale. The Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) has also waived the need to pay for the parking spots during the day. We send a list of parks to the City and PPA in August, and they work with us to help make the day a success!


A few...


We hand out "no parking" placards a 1-2 weeks before PARK(ing) Day, and you can post these at your space ahead of time. If your space is on Chestnut or Walnut Streets, just be ready to go as soon as the rush hour restrictions end, and you should be fine. Also, we ask for all teams to be flexible--if you post your placards at your location and a driver disregards the placard, go to the next closest available space. The PPA is willing to cooperate with us but they/we don't have the resources to tow for PARKing) Day.


We haven't turned away any team. However, we ask that all sign-ups and team materials are completed and submitted by August 30th.
