If you are heading out to the Bay County Fair this week you’d better watch where you park.
Many fair attendees are going home with their prizes and a parking ticket.
Here’s the problem: The Sherman Ave Post Office is directly across from the Fairgrounds and is being swamped with cars at night. It turns out it’s illegal to park there.
Cedar Grove Police wrote a lot of tickets and in some cases even had cars towed. Police tell us public parking at the post office has never been allowed.
There is some roped with plastic netting to let you know not to park on the grass, but motorists told us it was misleading. Fair officials say there is plenty of parking available at the Fairgrounds.
