Update: OPD has released a new map indicating expanded tow zones for Saturday’s Double Decker festivities.
“At 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning the tow area greatly expands. [Below] is a map of the streets and parking lots that will be cleared out on both Friday and Saturday morning.”
Visit Oxford has released their own information as well regarding the parking situation.
If you were somehow unaware that this weekend is the 21st annual Double Decker festival in Oxford, then let me be the first to tell you and warn you about parking your car on the Square this week.
As the city begins to prepare the handling of large crowds, vendors, musicians and more, they will need certain areas cleared by Friday. Oxford Police Department has released a statement in regards to parking on the Square.
“All vehicles must be removed by 4 a.m. on Friday morning or risk being towed.”
What this means is don’t go to the Square on Thursday night without a plan to get your car home or else it won’t be there when you come back to get it the next morning. Take a cab, take an Uber, walk or make sure have a designated driver. All of the above will work. Just don’t leave your car on the Square unless you want to pay the price to get it back.
Below are maps indicating the respited areas. The areas in red are zones for which cars will be towed, green spaces are private parking areas reserved for businesses and their employees.
