Drivers in downtown Portland, the Lloyd District and Marquam Hill will not need to plug parking meters on Thanksgiving Day.
Even though city of Portland offices will be closed both Thursday and Friday, drivers will have to pay for parking on Friday, which is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. The city says enforcing parking regulations on that day helps ensure parking spaces become available throughout the day.
Regular parking rates will also apply through Sunday.
