The annual tradition is back: the City of Hamilton is offering free street parking in numerous Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) between now and Christmas Eve.
Hamilton residents will be able to take advantage of free 2-hour street parking at meters in hopes of encouraging people to shop local for the holidays and put their spending money for gifts back into the local economy.
