NFL Hang Tags

Thanks to Greg Burnham at Oak Park for the reminder on hang tags! With the Panthers preseason about to kick off, hang tags are needed for street parking in Third Ward during stadium events. The tags are free at Charlotte's Park It! office, at 229 South Brevard Street. Your vehicle registration is needed to apply.
