Fees will be charged from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends and holidays beginning this Saturday until the last weekend in September: Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023. Parking fees can be paid using the HONK mobile app. Visitors do not have to download the app but can scan the QR code on parking lot signage to pay for parking.
