The City of Peterborough hopes to get more people to visit the downtown during the holidays by offering free two-hour parking.
Beginning Friday, Nov. 25, free two-hour parking will be available at all downtown municipal parking spaces, including on-street parking, municipal parking lots and the parking garages on King and Simcoe streets.
Drivers have the option to pay for parking, with the money to be donated to Kawartha Food Share. The food bank currently assists more than 8,900 people monthly through its 36 member agencies.
The free parking campaign will be in effect until Dec. 31. The promotion is sponsored by Wolfe Personal Injury Lawyers.
“It’s more important than ever to support and shop local,” said Bill Wolfe of Wolfe Lawyers. “Wolfe Lawyers will continue to invest in local opportunities which give back to the citizens of our great community. Wolfe Lawyers proudly sponsor ‘the gift of parking’ to let you enjoy our many great stores and restaurants during the holiday season, and we encourage people to support Kawartha Food Share with some form of donation to help those in need in our community.”
