Along with a well-paying job, affordable housing, and a decent brunch without a wait, free parking is becoming an increasingly hot commodity in downtown Charleston. And that’s fine. If people insist on strapping themselves inside a steel cage propelled by the energy harnessed by a set of controlled explosions, they should at least pay for a space to tie the thing up on the side of the road, right?

Well, just like the bag of toys that appears in your living room on Christmas morning, we’re here with a little present for all you Scrooges and Buddys. You know what they say, the best way to spread holiday cheer is putting this free parking voucher right over here.

Print off this bad boy for two hours of free parking at participating city and county garages downtown beginning on Black Friday. At this point, we know garages at the Visitor Center, 34 St. Philip, Concord-Cumberland, and East Bay-Prioleau are participating. The city advises you to check their website for more info next week. Free parking, right? Can’t be too picky.
