There will be no charge for parking on Thursday, November 22 in City parking lots or in on-street parking spaces within the Dickson Street Entertainment District and the Downtown Square Business District. City officials ask drivers to be mindful of spaces reserved for Lights of the Ozarks vendors on the Square or in marked residential parking spaces throughout the districts.
Paid parking will be reinstated at 2 p.m. in the Dickson Street district on Friday, November 23 and at 8 a.m. on Monday, November 26, in the Square district.
