National Park(ing) Day was last week, but storms delayed San Antonio's version of the event until Friday.
Parking spots along Main Street between Pecan and Houston streets were set aside -- not for cars, but for various booths and displays set up by local businesses.
Through, the event the city hopes to show people that parking spaces don't have to be just for parking.
"Its really to kind of talk about bringing to light the other options you have for parking and looking at other opportunities that you can convert parking," said Lori Houston, director for the City of San Antonio's Center City Development Office.
Among the groups participating booths were set up by museums, artists, cycling groups.
Food trucks were on hand to sell lunch and live music was provided for entertainment.
Vendors found it to be a great way to introduce themselves to people who might not normally know they even existed.
"Its a great way to get people out of their offices and down into downtown businesses. Get people active in their community," said Chelsea Torres, of Yelp San Antonio.
