As Independence Day approaches, Patrick Air Force Base will change entry gate operating hours consistent with the direction for previous federal holidays. This change maximizes the number of defenders who can spend time with family and friends.

June 30 (Friday): The East Gate closes at 10 p.m.

The South Gate will remain open with 24-hour access.

July 5 (Wednesday): The East Gate reopens at 6 a.m. and resumes regularly scheduled hours from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
