For those gathering to watch the parade, there were food vendors on hand and music playing.

One attendee, Tiffany Holmes, told Local 10 News reporter Alexis Frazier that she’s been coming to the parade since she was a little girl.

“It all started with my grandmother,” she said. “I remember being little -- we would sit on the floor in the living room and we had a record player, and she would play the MLK, “I Have a Dream” speech. So those were one of the fondest memories I’ve had growing up and being connected with Dr. Martin Luther King.”
