MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Some parking restrictions are being lifted in downtown Marquette for the holiday shopping season.

Starting on Thanksgiving Day and ending on December 27, all paid parking in Marquette will be suspended after 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The DDA is working with the Marquette Police Department to lift the parking charges as a way to thank the community for shopping local.

The Promotions and Events Coordinator for the DDA, Tara Laase-McKinney, reminds everyone to shop in person only if you are feeling well and to wear a mask if you will be entering any stores.

“If people are comfortable with it, and they’re feeling healthy, we definitely encourage people to go downtown and shop in person if they’re able to,” says Laase-McKinney. “We really do loving having all of our downtown businesses and we love it when people come down and support them.”

Downtown visitors may park without charge, after 3 p.m., in any of the available parking places except for the spots reserved for handicapped, 24-hour reserved spots, or loading zones. All overnight parking restrictions will still be in place.
