Holiday Free Parking Begins Today

No more digging around for loose change to fill the meters? That's Manhattan Beach's holiday gift to you. Starting today, little red bags covering the parking meters throughout town signify free parking for each spot, effective from now through Christmas Eve.

The red-bagged meters, a popular holiday tradition in Manhattan Beach, are courtesy of the City of Manhattan Beach, as approved by City Council.

Parking is free at each red-bagged parking spot up to the posted time limit.

"The merchants in Downtown Manhattan Beach are grateful for this gesture and look forward to sharing the news with their clientele each year. It really does make a difference, and it is just another way that the city helps add to the holiday spirit," said Kelly Stroman, executive director of the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business and Professional Association.
