JUNEAU - Metered spaces in Marine Parking Garage will be free to park in for up to four hours beginning Nov. 28, Black Friday, through the end of the year.
As in past years, the free parking is intended to encourage downtown shopping during the holiday season.
"In Christmastime, it improves our experience, for sure. At least they have some place to park, and it's free. Everybody likes something free," said Ann House, president of the Downtown Business Association.
It normally costs 50 cents an hour to park in the garage.
