  1. Set up tables and seating for the event
  2. Set up recycling, compost, and trash bins and emptying/replacing as needed
  3. Pull and gather no parking barricades and signage around the activated park after the start of the event
  4. Refill hydration at the Information Booth
  5. Assist with outreach and impromptu surveys
  6. Provide a helping hand when needed
  7. Be a cheerful ambassador on behalf of Sunday Parkways to event participants, volunteers, and the neighborhood
