The city of Galveston will allow limited overnight parking on Seawall Boulevard during the first weekend of Mardi Gras, city spokeswoman Jaree Fortin said.
People can park properly registered vehicles and trailers starting 5 a.m. Friday, Fortin said. All vehicles must be removed on Sunday, she said.
Paid parking will be enforced over the weekend, Fortin said. Vehicles and trailers must show a license plate and pay for parking between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day, Fortin said.
Drivers who park overnight on Seawall Boulevard before Friday will be cited and towed, Fortin said.
Parking spots on Seawall Boulevard are expected to fill up quickly, and a number of spaces on the street will be designated as no parking zones or restricted access areas, Fortin said.
Residents and visitors are also asked to keep sidewalk pathways clear of obstacles, and to only cover parking spaces with properly registered vehicles or trailers. Cones, chairs, ropes and chains will be removed at the owner's expense, Fortin said.
