Is Petra open on January 13, 2014?

I read that Milad un Nab falls on the 13th this year, and I understand banks and government offices will be closed that day. Will Petra still be open, or will it close for the holiday?

Like most tourist sites, Petrra does good business on national holiday dates. No way it would be closed.
