The City of Muskegon implemented paid parking at Pere Marquette last year with the 2023 daily rate on weekends of $10 (or a season pass for $20). Racers will find a number of kiosks located near parking spaces that will take credit cards and coins. Dispensed parking passes must be displayed on the driver’s side dashboard.
