BOSTON (CBS) – More than a week after the Boston Marathon bombings, Boylston Street is back open for business.

In an effort to get people back to the area, Mayor Menino announced Wednesday that parking in the Back Bay will be free through Sunday.

“Boston is strong and we will support Boylston Strong all weekend long,” Mayor Menino said in a statement. “As of today, these businesses that have been off limits since Marathon Monday are open and are looking forward to receiving and serving their customers once again.”

There will be free parking at meters on all Back Bay streets between Arlington and Massachusetts Ave. as well as parking meters adjacent to the Public Garden.
