ANNAPOLIS, MD (November 18, 2020) - The City of Annapolis will close City offices on Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27 for the Thanksgiving holiday. On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, Annapolis transit will not operate and refuse and recycling pickup will be pushed back one day with Thursday collections taking place on Friday and Friday collections taking place on Saturday. Also on November 26, the Roger W. “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center and Stanton Community Center will be closed. These two Recreation and Parks facilities will reopen at 8 a.m. on Friday.
“While this has been a very rough year, I know that we here in the City of Annapolis can be thankful for living in a beautiful place with caring neighbors,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “Together, we are going to get to the other side of COVID. In the meantime, practice kindness, and, if you have the means, be generous in supporting your local community. Most of all, keep yourself and your family safe by watching your distance, wearing your mask and washing your hands.”
Holiday updates due to COVID:
Downtown will continue to offer three hours of free parking at meters from Black Friday to New Years. Get a fourth hour free by using the ParkMobile app on your smartphone and using the code “ParkDTA.”
Midnight Madness has been modified with no street closures and no live entertainment. Retail stores will be open late on Dec. 3, 10 and 17. Retailers are being encouraged to offer late hours Fridays-Saturdays throughout this period to allow shoppers to spread out in order to maintain physical distancing. All residents and visitors are encouraged to shop locally to help our businesses and our local economy get through this difficult period.
Parade of Lights has been canceled due to concerns over crowding at locations in downtown, on the Spa Creek bridge and in Eastport.
