Temple Street Parking Garage
The Grand Opening of the garage was 12 noon on Monday, November 12, 1962, with ceremonies held at the George Street entrance.
The program of the Grand Opening included talks by city officials and music by the Governor’s Foot Guard band.
The opening featured an open house throughout the day, with 3 clowns distributing balloons and airplane gliders with free coffee and doughnuts available for visitors. The event was presided over by “Miss Parking Garage” who was selected the Friday evening before during an event at the nearby Paramount Theater. Miss Parking Garage won an all-expenses-paid weekend for two at Mount Airy Lodge in the Poconos, with the winner and runner-up also winning prizes donated by downtown merchants.
