Yes you get Sat. Sun. and Mon. And I gotta say this was my first holiday visit and it was not that busy and my man is at one of those camps where they have so many inmates that they only have one day visits and today everyone was allowed there, but there wasn't really that much, so I highly doubt with the 4th being a Sunday and everyone partying or having to be at work Monday it won't be busy either.

When the holiday falls on a Sunday we get Monday as the holiday visit and when it falls on a Saturday we get Friday unless it's a holiday that is always on a Sunday such as Easter, etc, which are not state holidays.

In Kansas it's clearly posted "no". If Christmas were to fall on a weekend they wouldn't extent visits then either. Unless things changed between now and then.

Yes, when a holiday falls on a normal visiting day, you won't get an extra day.

For example - here in Cali, we only get visits on Saturday and Sunday, so when one of the 5 authorized visiting holidays we get out here (New Years, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas) falls on Sat or Sun - then that's all we get. If one of those 5 holidays falls on Monday - Friday, we get the holiday and then also the usual Sat & Sun.

I'm going to move this thread to the Florida Prison Visitation forum where I think you'll get better response.

According to the Florida Dept of Corrections

Regular visiting is permitted on the following holidays:
  • New Year's Day
  • Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. (third Monday in January)
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Veteran's Day (November 11th)
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Friday after Thanksgiving; and
  • Christmas Day
If any of the holidays listed above falls on Saturday, the preceding Friday will be observed as a holiday. If any of these holidays fall on Sunday, then the following Monday will be observed as the holiday.

That being noted...then for the 4th of July that falls on a Sunday, then Monday is observed as the Holiday.

Yes, three days in a row- just like it was for Memorial Day weekend here in Florida. From what I'm reading that's one thing we get in Florida that's better than in many other states.

In Florida if the holiday falls on Sunday then we get Monday and if it falls on Saturday we get the Friday before. at least this is like this where my husband is in Marion.
Hope this helps

I've heard of some facilities not providing the Friday visit, not sure how true that is. You can always call the facility to verify before making travel arrangements.

yes.. sometimes it is nice for her to go without me. My younger daughter will be 18 in 2 weeks, she cannot wait to go with her sister to see him without me Also by doing it this way, his visits aren't as spreed apart. I go once a month.. if my daughter goes without me, that is 2 visits in one month.

The Friday visit is the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve will also be 3 day weekend because those holidays are on Saturday.

Which visit day will be on Thursday and not Friday? Veteran's Day is this Thursday so that is a visit day, but Friday will not be. Veteran's Day is always the 11th so that's why visitation is Thursday. Thanksgiving visits should be Thurs-Sunday as stated on the DOC website unless you are stating they are cutting a day of visitation that weekend??? They being Sumter.

I know Xmas and New Years are special visits, but Xmas Eve and New Years Eve also considered special visits? Someone mentioned that today and I don't recall reading that, but just wanted to make sure since she's been doing this longer then I have?

Does anyone know if this schedule is the same for private prisons, such as Blackwater River CF?
