There will be no charge for parking on Tuesday, December 24 or Wednesday, December 25 in City parking lots or for 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.
