So, the Holiday Season is bearing down upon us and it seems as though the gift giving is beginning already. The parking commission of Bellingham has just announced that their gift to the community this year is going to be FREE PARKING downtown November 17th through December 31st during lunchtime hours. Specifically, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 pm, Monday through Friday (weekends are already free!). In addition, they have declared 4 days in which parking will be absolutely free all day long: November 27th and 28th as well as December 25th and 26th. Now, you can sneak downtown and do your Holiday shopping during your lunch break without wasting any of your hard earned cash on parking. Or, even better, come down to grab some lunch and a beer at Boundary Bay Brewery before or after your shopping.
