On-street parking fees throughout downtown Warren are pre-paid by ErieBank for the rest of the week.

“ErieBank is proud to support local merchants this holiday season by providing free two-hour parking for shoppers this weekend,” Assistant Vice President Terri Swanson said.

“The purpose of this is to encourage the community to come to downtown Warren and support our local merchants,” City of Warren Police Chief Brandon Deppen said. “ErieBank has been a supporter of the downtown by providing this program for the past several years.”

The bank has paid for parking on the weekend of the Christmas Parade since at least 2015.

That the meters are bagged does not give someone free-reign to park and stay all day.

“We’re still going to be enforcing the two-hour parking limit,” Deppen said.
