You can actually park in downtown now!

With all the construction in downtown this summer and waterfront shows, parking has been near impossible. It's about to change though! The Bangor parkinggarage has extended its hours! Yes! Winning!

The garage will now be open until 1 a.m on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The first two hours are free. Two - three hours of parking costs $1.50, and 50 cents for each additional hour. The 24-hour maximum costs $4.50.

The change was prompted by the increased activity in the downtown area.
