Title: Shop Local with Free Parking Thanksgiving Weekend

Mohler and Olszewski team up for shop local video

Baltimore County is making local shopping easier this holiday season with two hours of free meter parking. Parking will be free at 1,735 meters throughout Baltimore County Thanksgiving weekend, November 22-25. For last-minute shoppers, there also will be free meter parking December 21-25, just before Christmas.

County Executive Don Mohler and County Executive-Elect John Olszewski, Jr. teamed up to encourage local shopping in a video recorded in downtown Towson.

"A little relief at the parking meter during the busiest days of the holiday season makes it easier to support locally owned shops and restaurants,” said Mohler.

“Our small businesses help support the neighborhood economy. We encourage everyone to get out and shop local on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season,” said Olszewski.

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