There is another one scheduled for next week.
There will be a free parking day in a major midlands town this week.
Westmeath County Council carparks will offer free parking across Mullingar.
There is also another free parking day scheduled for the following Friday, the same day the Christmas light are being switched on in the town.
There were many complaints about the last free parking day offered by the council in May, as signs were not displayed until after 1pm in the afternoon.
