Please be aware free parking is only available between 4.30pm and 8.30pm on Thursdays, December 6, 13 and 20 in car parks owned by Boston Borough Council and this does not include on-street parking including the Market Place, which are controlled by Lincolnshire County Council.

For information on all of Boston Borough Council's car parks see The numbered car parks are the borough council's.

Cllr Nigel Welton, Boston Borough Council's town centre portfolio holder, said: "Councils are cash-strapped and car parking revenue is important to us, but we like to be able to find something to give back at Christmas. We hope that free car parking will encourage lots to come into town for these events, and there is a choice of one, two, three or all of the nights to enjoy, all of them with free parking."
