City of Hagerstown – Paid Parking Returns to Downtown August 3
Street, lot, and deck parking to resume normal paid schedules, procedures
With Governor Hogan’s Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery continuing to reopen the state by lifting many restrictions previously imposed under his executive orders, paid parking and timed parking limits will return to Downtown Hagerstown on Monday, August 3. In the coming weeks, Parking Enforcement Officers will be returning to the streets and lots, and Parking Attendants will be back in the decks in an effort to spread the word and ensure public awareness regarding the resumption of paid parking in downtown beginning on August 3. Questions may be directed to a Parking Attendant or Enforcement Officer, and by calling the Parking Office at 301-739-8577, ext. 445.
Imagine Hagerstown Strikes Up the Bands Outdoors This Friday
The Fourth Friday Music Series as it was originally imagined—mostly!
After COVID-19 forced June’s Imagine Hagerstown Fourth Friday Music Series to go virtual, this Friday’s edition will mark the 2020 outdoor debut of the series as originally imagined—with some restrictions. An evening of great musical entertainment is scheduled from 5-8pm. The concert will take place at University Plaza, 50 West Washington Street, free of charge. Attendees are invited to get takeout from one of Hagerstown’s outstanding downtown restaurants, bring chairs and blankets, and settle in for what promises to be a terrific show. Alcohol in non-breakable containers will be permitted. Fan favorite the Skyla Burrell Band will headline Friday’s lineup, playing rock, swinging good time, get down and boogie music, punctuated by high-energy original electric blues. Opening for Skyla will be the popular bluegrass band with Washington County roots, The Plate Scrapers. With influences ranging from jazz to hard rock to funk, the group has taken its music to an eclectic new level by incorporating original material and dabbling in genre-bending “jamgrass” music. Event-goers are encouraged to wear face coverings, follow social distancing guidelines, and practice safe hygiene while enjoying the concert. University Plaza will be limited to 50-percent capacity for the event. Imagine Hagerstown is supported, in part, by the Maryland State Arts Council (msac.org), the Washington County Arts Council, and Visit Hagerstown—the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
