Free parking for Small Shop Saturday

Parking will be free downtown Oct. 13 but drivers are warned time restrictions will still be in place.

Small Shop Saturday has spawned free-parking Saturday.

The City of Kelowna says it is supporting the Downtown Kelowna Association’s latest plan for a Small Shop Saturday event, an initiative aimed at encouraging consumers to shop and dine downtown, by waiving on-street parking charges on Saturday, Oct. 13.

But shoppers are being warned that while parking will be free, posted time restrictions will remain in effect so parking spaces can be turned over for new customers.

This is the third Small Shop Saturday organized by the DKA this year.
