City offers free meter parking on Saturdays for the holiday season

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- If you prefer to do your holiday shopping in person - rather than online - the city of Philadelphia will make it easier for you.

Beginning today until January 1, metered parking in the city will be free after 11 a.m. on Saturdays. And on Saturdays and Sundays you can park at six Philadelphia Parking Authority garages between 11 a.m. and midnight, for a flat rate of $8.

However, time limits on residential parking blocks will still be enforced.
