Let’s face it. No one likes the holiday hassle of driving around for a parking space, then hauling packages across a huge parking lot. Baltimore County’s holiday gift to harried shoppers is 1,735 free parking spaces during some of the busiest shopping days of the season. Every one of these free parking spaces is near great locally owned shops and restaurants.

Shoppers get two hours of free parking over Thanksgiving weekend, November 22-25, and December 20-25. Just look for the meters decorated with red “free parking” bags in Catonsville, Towson, Parkville, Essex, Pikesville, Arbutus, Stoneleigh, and Dundalk.

Find unique gifts and services, support your local store owners, and do your part to keep the neighborhood economy going strong. 

Check out our holiday parking video — then get up, get out and shop local! 

Editor's Note: The county is providing 695 spots in Towson, 93 in Catonsville, 43 in Dundalk, 185 in Parkville, 169 in Pikesville and 55 in Arbutus.
