The Day is final step of Turkish war of independence. You can see the parades in city centers and watch the formal ceremony that broadcasted on Tv. You see the national flag of Turkey on balconies. Goverment buildings and some large companies are closed on this day. However, markets are open and transportation is available. We suggest walking around the museums,if you are in Istanbul, the palaces especially the Topkapi Palace and if you are in Ankara, Ataturk's Mausoleum a.k.a Anitkabir.
