We look forward to the 12th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Walk & Parade – another festive experience.
The parade began in 1979, six years before Kings’s birthday became a federal holiday. We continue the tradition and celebration that the Rolarks and Petey Greene started, as we honor Dr. King and keep his message alive.
