Park on Patch's Dime in Caldwell Saturday

Caldwells Patch is paying it forward—and offering you the royal treatment on Small Business Saturday. We're paying for Bloomfield Avenue parking meters in Caldwell. Stop by and meet us!

We want you to have one day when parking on Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell is a pleasure—no rooting around for coins in the bottom of your purse or pocket, no running outside frantic, mid-conversation, to feed the meter.

Caldwells Patch has paid for dozens of parking meters on Bloomfield Avenue for Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Come out and support local businesses for Small Business Saturday. Visit and take photos with Santa at Caldwell Flowerland and take part in the Caldwell Merchants Association's Holiday Treasure Hunt.

However, keep in mind, the regular time limits will still be applied to ALL meters.

Staff, including Local Editor Teresa Akersten, Essex County Regional Editor Giovanna Fabiano, and others will be stationed along the route greeting and meeting you. Just look for our green Patch T-shirts and meter covers!

We'll be handing out Patch swag—pens, water bottles, ice scrapers, hand warmers and more—and letting you know about our mission and looking for your input: comments, criticisms and suggestions.

If you haven't already, you can also sign up to get the daily Patch newsletter.

Do us a favor and share the news with your friends and family who live and work in the Caldwells!
