We are simultaneously in the midst of fighting nasty colds and of a do-it-yourself kitchen redo so the toddler and I haven’t been out and about much this week. But, here’s something to look forward to this holiday season: free parking! Check it out Oakland:
Free Holiday Parking on Plaid Friday & Saturdays from Thanksgiving to New Year’s
Public Information Officer Harry Hamilton, City Administrator’s Office CITY
In the spirit of the holidays and to stimulate shopping in Oakland’s commercial districts in support of local merchants, the City of Oakland will offer free parking every Saturday between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, plus Plaid Friday which is November 28. Free parking is at meters on streets throughout Oakland and at four City-owned parking lots for the time period posted on the meter or multi-space kiosk (30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours or 5 hours). Motorists should note and follow the maximum time limits posted. The program will also provide free parking at four city-owned garages. Visit http://www.oaklandnet.com/parking for more information.
