If you plan to visit downtown Chattanooga on Labor Day, expect to enjoy free metered parking.

The Chattanooga Parking Authority says downtown parking meters will not be enforced, and you won't have to pay on Monday, September 5, 2016 in honor of the Labor Day holiday.

But don't plan on parking illegally, in a bus or loading zone, a no parking area or a handicapped spot, because you will be ticketed just like any other day since they are enforced 24/7.

The Chattanooga Parking Authority will be closed for the holiday, so bus passes will not be available.
