This Friday, if you're thinking of paying that parking ticket at the municipal courthouse, or visit Pioneers Museum or seek help from the county's Workforce Center, you're out of luck.

The city of Colorado Springs and El Paso County will observe Veterans Day by closing its offices. For the city, this includes:
· City Hall

Staying open will be Pikes Peak Highway, with free admission to military (active and retired) with ID; Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center and the park; Sertich Ice Center, with a special Veterans Day skate time, and City Auditorium for rental only. Doors open at 7 p.m. for an 8 p.m. performance of Red Carpet Soul Jam by Donell Jones w/Silk, Tony Exum Jr, & Rodney Perry.

Veterans Day evolved from Armistice Day, which was established as a permanent official public holiday in 1938 to honor Veterans of the First World War. It was renamed Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all Veterans.
