If the thought of a mall parking lot has you dreaming of drone delivery, Baltimore County has a holiday gift for you. Skip the malls and head for free meter parking in a neighborhood near you. 

From December 20-25, you don’t have to feed the parking meters in Baltimore County.  Just look for the red “Seasons Greetings” bags covering parking meters from Parkville to Pikesville, Main Street Reisterstown to Main Street Dundalk, Towson to Catonsville.

Free neighborhood parking makes local shopping a little easier -- and a lot smarter.

It’s getting late and you still need a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special.  It’s time to shop small. Baltimore County’s locally owned shops are the place to go for unique gifts and restaurant gift certificates.  When you support local business owners you help keep the neighborhood economy going strong. 

Baltimore County’s holiday gift to you 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 December 20-25.  Just look for the meters decorated with red “Seasons Greetings” bags in Catonsville, Towson, Parkville, Essex, Pikesville, Arbutus, Stoneleigh, Overlea, and Dundalk.
