It’s hard to find good parking in the city, especially on the weekends.
Downtown is always busy on Saturdays and Sundays.
There are always activities and events with live music and food. Last weekend there was an event held by the police department. They were there to promote the new Police Athletic League. The streets were lined with vendors selling arts, crafts, and food. My girlfriend wanted to go to the festival, but I had to work that day. I had a couple of furnace repair calls to handle and I was the only repair technician scheduled that day. One of my repair jobs was downtown in the same area as the event. I had to park my truck several blocks away from the address and I was still in the middle of the party scene. I packed up all of my tools into a bag and I started to leave the truck. A police officer stopped me from leaving and told me that I had to move my truck. I wasn’t parked in a no-parking Zone and there were no street signs that said no parking. The police officer informed me that they were going to have a parade in 2 hours and my vehicle would be parked right in the middle of things. Since I was a repair technician, the police officer believed I might take longer than 2 hours and he did not want to hunt me down to get me to move the truck. Luckily, the officer hooked me up with a spot close to the apartment where I was working on a heating and AC problem.
