Wow! Free Holiday Parking in Oakland!

Thursday, November 1, 2012

The city of Oakland has announced it is offering free holiday parking as part of its shop local campaign.

Shoppers may park for free in metered spaces and city-owned garages on Saturdays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. But note: Posted time limits – typically two or four hours or 30 minutes, for example – will be enforced. Watch for laminated flyers on parking kiosks and stickers on meters for details.

This program is a key part of the Oakland Grown Holiday Marketing Campaign. Show your support for your neighborhood and your city, and shop local. A shop local guide accompanying this issue of The Rockridge News will help direct you to the many shopping experiences available along College Avenue.
