The City of Ithaca is offering free parking throughout the City on Thursday, December 24 and Friday, December 25, 2015 to encourage last minute shoppers to do so locally, and to thank all of our businesses and residents who have successfully made the transition to our new parking equipment.

The free parking applies to all on-street parking and the Seneca Street, Green Street, Cayuga Street, and Dryden Road parking garages. As always, free parking is available on the street throughout the weekend as well.

Rediscover the great shopping, dining and entertainment establishments throughout the City as you spend time with your family and friends this holiday season. Stay as long as you like – the parking is on us!

The City of Ithaca wishes you merriest of holidays and a prosperous new year!
