Martin Luther King Jr. Day falls on the third Monday in January, and is held in honor of the civil rights leader's Jan. 15 birthday.
This year it falls on Jan. 18. It's also a federal holiday, so there will be some services closed as a result. Here's a look at what's open and closed.
The U.S. Postal Service will not be delivering mail, nor will post offices be open. (The only exception is for Priority Mail deliveries.)
UPS and FedEx will operate as normal, though both UPS and FedEx say some deliveries might be slightly later because the USPS observes the holiday, so the services that use USPS may be delayed by a business day.
Local, state, federal government offices
Government offices at all levels are generally closed aside from emergency services.
In Minneapolis, for example, city government offices are closed as is the Minneapolis 311 service.
MLK Day celebrations
Most celebrations to honor Martin Luther King Jr. will be held virtually this year instead of in-person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here's a list of several Twin Cities virtual events.
U.S. Bank, TCF Bank and Wells Fargo recognize MLK Day as a bank holiday, so you'll find most branches will be closed. Any transactions you can make won't be processed until Tuesday.
In Minneapolis, there will be regular pickups on Monday despite the holiday. However, the Downtown Solid Waste customer service office and the South Transfer Station will be closed.
It's the same in St. Paul, where MLK Day isn't one of the holidays that alters collection days.
City parking meters in Minneapolis won't be enforced on MLK Day, but Park Board meters along Minneapolis parkways will be, as will University of Minnesota parking meters.
Meters also won't be enforced in St. Paul.
Stores and malls
Most of these will be open and operating as usual, while many retailers offer MLK Day sales.
Metro Transit is running a normal schedule, including buses, the light rail and the Northstar.
However, the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority is running a reduced service, information on which you can find here.
Museums, zoos, theaters, bowling alleys
Places of entertainment, like museums, zoos, movie theaters and bowling alleys, are now allowed to be open following a temporary state-ordered shutdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of those that have reopened, many will be open on MLK Day – but check their website before you as some require tickets to be purchased/reserved in advance.
