Peterborough, ON – Beginning Friday, November 26, shoppers can enjoy free two-hour holiday parking at all downtown municipal parking spaces, including on-street, municipal parking lots and the King Street Garage.

Parking fees that are voluntarily paid at pay-and-display machines, parking meters or via the HotSpot App during the free two-hour period will be donated to Kawartha Food Share.

The promotion is sponsored by Wolfe Personal Injury Lawyers. Free two-hour holiday parking continues until December 31, 2021 to encourage people to do their holiday shopping locally.

Wolfe Lawyers will continue to invest in local opportunities which give back to the citizens of our great community. Wolfe Lawyers proudly sponsor “the gift of parking” to let you enjoy our many great stores and restaurants during the holiday season, and we encourage people to support Kawartha Food Share with some form of donation to help those in need in our community,” said, Bill Wolfe, of Wolfe Lawyers.

To allow for steady turn-over of on-street parking spots and convenient access to shops and restaurants, on-street parking downtown is a maximum of two hours. People who need more time are asked to park in the City’s surface lots or the King Street Parking Garage. 

Ashlee Aitken, General Manager of Kawartha Food Share, expressed her gratitude to for the contribution to the organization that currently assists more than 8,900 people each month through its 36 member agencies, including meal programs and food banks.

 “We are so thankful for the continued support we receive from the City of Peterborough as well as local shoppers each December! Our shelves are always quite bare after the busy holiday season and this donation will allow us to replenish our food supply and ensure our community members continue to have safe and reliable access to emergency food. Now more than ever, we need to support our amazing local businesses and we hope citizens take advantage of this initiative and shop local this December.”
