The festive spirit means free parking during specific times in downtown Vernon.
There will be free parking in downtown Vernon Saturdays from Nov. 29 to Dec. 27 as residents prepare for Christmas festivities.
Parking is always free on Friday nights and Sundays and as part of the Downtown Vernon Association’s celebrations, there will be extended shopping Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. until Dec. 28.
This Friday, Downtown Vernon’s Christmas Light Up, which is sponsored by MNP, runs from 5 to 8 p.m.
The Downtown Vernon Association has arranged for free parking and transit to and from downtown to make Light Up accessible to residents.
