Towson, Maryland (November 27, 2013) – A parking meter holiday will make it easier for busy shoppers to support locally owned businesses throughout Baltimore County on Small Business Saturday and the entire long holiday weekend.

"This time of the year it is especially important to support the owners of Baltimore County's local shops and restaurants," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "We're doing our part with a parking meter holiday Thanksgiving weekend, so shoppers can help keep the neighborhood economy going strong."
Free meter parking in Baltimore County returns December 20 to 25 for last-minute shopping.
