Veterans Day and American flag

City of Gastonia offices will be closed on Nov. 11 for Veterans Day, and several municipal services will be affected by the holiday. Because of COVID-19, this year’s Veterans Day Parade in Gastonia has been canceled. The Gaston County Veterans Council decided not to hold the annual parade and ceremony because of pandemic-related limits on crowd sizes and to avoid jeopardizing the safety and wellbeing of veterans who might have increased health risks.

Open on Veterans Day:

Guests are asked to follow COVID-19 protocols.

Changes in services on Veterans Day:

Residents can use the WasteWise app to receive personalized notifications about holiday-related changes to Solid Waste collection. Customers can also use the “My Schedule” tool on the City’s webpage to keep track of their garbage collection schedule.

Election day:

All five Gastonia community centers serve as polling places and will not offer recreation activities Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 2-4, because of the elections and related cleaning.
