We extend the classical definition of patterns in permutations to parking functions. In particular we study parking functions that avoid permutations of length 3. A number of well-known combinatorial sequences arise in our analysis, and this talk will highlight several bijective results. This project is joint work with Ayomikun Adeniran.
