Don’t sweat the parking. I’m always surprised when I hear people complain about parking in Gloucester. Honestly, I’ve never had trouble finding a parking space — not even during Fiesta. Last night I went to the Harbor Loop Concert. I got there after it started on a beautiful summer night in the height of the tourist season when every local hotel is full and what do you know? I found a parking space on Rogers Street at Harbor Loop! In fact I had my choice of at least half a dozen free (after 6) spots on Rogers within earshot of the music. Plus there were plenty of spaces at I4-C2. So don’t worry about the few Main Street parking spots that are not available during the Block Party. Trust me. You won’t have a problem finding a space within a couple minutes walk.
