DIB offers free parking next week

The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) is offering a gift to last minute shoppers venturing Downtown the week of Christmas: Free Parking.

In effect from Dec. 22 through Dec. 26, all surface lots and parking meters will be free of charge to Downtown holiday shoppers, excluding Jefferson Street Parking Garage.

Although parking will be free, time limits will be enforced in all designated areas. The program is intended to provide convenience and encourage holiday shoppers to visit Downtown Pensacola.
