Wrightsville Beach parking meters go on vacation


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- A post-Halloween treat for visitors to Wrightsville Beach. Town parking enforcement has put away the tickets.

Yesterday was the last day that paid parking was enforced. Collectors were out emptying the meters for the final time today.

The seasonal rate is two dollars per hour, but starting today, you can park for free at Wrightsville Beach.

"It is really nice being able to park here," Wrightsville Beach resident Oliver Evans said. "I kind of wish it was October 1. That would make more sense, because that's more when the off-season starts, but it is November 1 now, so we can all park here. It is our parking lot now. No more tickets at 9:00 in the morning.>

You can enjoy free parking at Wrightsville Beach until the end of February. As of March 1, the meters will be back in effect.
