The Annual 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade
Monday, January 21, 2013 – Downtown Las Vegas
Grand Marshal Selected
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee of Las Vegas will be celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with its 31st Annual Birthday Celebration Parade. The Committee was founded in November 1981 celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by keeping the dream alive. We cordially invite the Las Vegas community to join us in this celebration at the largest parade in the state of Nevada to be held in downtown Las Vegas.
The 2013 Theme is “Living the Dream: Dream with a Vision; Live with a Purpose.” The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee of Las Vegas is proud to announce that longtime community servants Lillian McMorris and Reverend Dr. Marion Bennett will serve as the Grand Marshals for the upcoming 31st annual MLK Parade and King Week celebration. For the first time in the parade’s history a public entity will serve as the Honorary Grand Marshal; KCEP Power 88 has been selected for that honor as they celebrate their 40th year of broadcasting. All of our Grand Marshals were selected because of their commitment to our community.
Freedom, equality and justice were tenets that our founding fathers embraced and we celebrate as a community to demonstrate our continued commitment to those values. The 31st annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade will be held on Monday, January 21, 2013 in downtown Las Vegas beginning at 10:00am
