One of the worst parts about going to Sacramento’s downtown district is having to pay for parking…and finding parking. Thankfully the annual free parking program is coming back for the holidays.

In an effort to encourage us to shop and dine locally, you won’t have to feed the meters at all during the weekends or on weekdays after 4:30 p.m.. That includes those pesky green payment machines, too.

The program beginning this Saturday, November 23 and runs through Christmas Day. Parking will be free in Midtown and Old Sacramento.

“Please note that the free parking zone will extend from ā€œIā€ to ā€œLā€ Streets and from Front Street to 29th Street, and only applies to metered on-street parking spaces.” according to The City of Sacramento website. “All other parking violations such as street cleaning and color zones are still enforceable as posted.”
