It pays to be observant.
Today we went to Fish Day in Port Washington. Usually the parking situation is atrocious, but there was a thunderstorm in the early afternoon that cleared people out of the festival. We arrived a bit after the storm subsided. Searching for parking, we found a spot or two very close to the entrance to the festival grounds. My skepticism kicked in and I looked around for parking signs. I didnâ€™t see any, but I did notice that every car parked in this area had a ticket on their windshields.
Decided to find a different spot.
