A Note On BlobFest Parking

In years past, there has been lots of free parking to be found in the blocks surrounding the Colonial Theater and BlobFest. But it looks like some changes have been made by the town to that and the BlobFest folks want you to know about them. Over at the BlobFest Facebook page, they added the following note on the parking situation for this year’s fest –

The three main municipal lots (behind the Colonial, on the corner of Bridge & Main, and at Main & Prospect) are metered. Parking is $1 per hour from 9am to 9pm, Monday thru Saturday. You can use a credit card or coins to pay at the stations set up in each lot (the machines do not accept dollar bills). There is a 12 hour limit for each spot. There is only one meter in each lot, so you may have to do some looking around to spot them.

– The two-hour parking on Bridge Street between Starr and Gay Streets and on Gay and Main Streets between Bridge and Church is strongly enforced. The parking in these spots is free but limited to two hours.

– Employee parking is set up in the gravel lot across Main Street from the Foundry. You must have a current, paid permit to park in this lot.

– The lot behind the Dollar Store is set aside for resident parking and available to those who have a current, paid permit.

– In the future, there may be some restricted, resident-only parking on Church Street, but not at this time. Please respect the fact that people live on that street and need to park their cars too, so use the metered lots when you come in to town in the evenings.
