Free Holiday Parking Downtown!
To encourage shoppers to visit downtown during the holidays, the City of Bellingham is launching the Holiday Parking Program, December 13-25. Downtown shoppers can enjoy free parking in metered spaces all day every day.
“We offered free two-hour lunch parking between Thanksgiving and Christmas in past years,” said Clark Williams, Transportation Superintendent with Public Works. “It was confusing for shoppers,” he added. The Downtown Bellingham Partnership proposed longer hours on fewer days this season.
Although parking is free all day, drivers are asked to park responsibly by observing the time limits posted on the meters. Shoppers wishing to stay longer are encouraged to park on the ground floor of the Parkade.
