Baltimore County is making local shopping easier this holiday season with two hours of free meter parking for last-minute shoppers, December 20-25. Parking will be free at 1,735 meters throughout Baltimore County.

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

“We help our neighborhood economy when we shop at locally owned businesses,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “A little relief at the parking meter during the busiest days of the holiday season makes it easier to support our locally owned shops and restaurants.”

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