Fewer parking restrictions along Seawall Blvd. over first weekend of Mardi Gras Galveston
GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- If you plan on joining in on the Mardi Gras celebrations on Galveston Island, you can look forward to fewer parking restrictions, at least for the first weekend.
The city will allow limited overnight parking along Seawall Boulevard during the first weekend. That begins on January 31. All vehicles must be removed by 6am on February 3.
Currently, the city bans parking along the seawall between 3am and 5am.
The parties and parades continue through Fat Tuesday, which is February 12.
The Galveston Police Department reminds residents and visitors not to try to cover space with anything other than a properly registered vehicle or trailer, and that cones, chairs, ropes, chains and the like will be removed at the owners' expense.
There will be a number of areas along the Seawall designated as no parking zones or restricted access areas. The City reminds all revelers to take note of these areas when parking their vehicles.
