Local Shopping Made Easier

Baltimore County is making local shopping easier this holiday season with two hours of free parking at 1,735 meters Christmas week, December 20 to 25.

Parking meters will be decorated with red “Seasons Greetings” bags in Catonsville, Towson, Parkville, Essex, Overlea, Pikesville, Arbutus, Stoneleigh and Dundalk.

"Baltimore County is giving shoppers the gift of free parking at all County meters Christmas week,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “We want to make it easier for people to support our locally owned shops and restaurants. These small businesses are the perfect place to find unique presents, restaurant gift certificates, flowers and hostess gifts or a special holiday outfit.”

County Executive Kamenetz encourage local shopping in a video recorded along the Frederick Road shopping district in Catonsville.
