Holiday Schedule

Even parking tickets get a day off now and then. On City of Durham-designated holidays, parking enforcement ambassadors do not issue parking tickets, excluding Police Department-issued parking citations. Further, parking will generally be free in on-street metered parking spaces and in the parking garages and surface lots. From time to time, special event parking rates may be enforced on holidays.
