Free Two-Hour Parking on Saturdays

278 green-bagged meters located around Main St and SouthSide Arts District
Nov 30th - Dec 21st
All Day
Historic Bethlehem Main Street and SouthSide Arts District
All Ages

In the spirit of spreading that Christmas City cheer, Lehigh Valley Health Network is sponsoring free two-hour parking in Downtown Bethlehem on Saturdays during the holiday season.
Green bags that read “Free 2-Hour Parking / Happy Holidays from Lehigh Valley Health Network” will cover 278 meters around Historic Bethlehem Main Street and the SouthSide Arts District. Why 278? Bethlehem will celebrate its 278th birthday on Christmas Eve this year.
The sponsorship will run all day on Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21.
“If you head to downtown Bethlehem, you’ll see banners hung above the streets, posters in the windows, and even a digital billboard sporting the tagline, “Spread the cheer. Free parking is here!”” said Mayor Donchez.
Here’s the catch: we hope this “random” act of kindness inspires others to pay it forward. Whether you donate your time to a local food bank or simply buy coffee for the person behind you in the drive-thru line, we hope you’ll feel inspired to spread warmth and kindness this holiday season.
Please be mindful and move your car after two hours. Meter limits will be enforced to make sure all visitors have a chance to shop, dine and enjoy the Christmas City.
