Friday deadline to enter MLK Day Parade

Staff Writer

Since 1986, the nation has celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Day, honoring the man for his legacy, and Grenada is shaping up its celebration with two big events.

The city has hosted an MLK Day celebration for over 25 years and will kick off this year’s events on Jan. 15, beginning with a prayer breakfast at the Lewis Johnson Senior Complex.

The breakfast is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and admission to the event is $10 for tickets, which may be purchased with cash only, at the door.

The guest speaker will be Bishop Milton Glass of the New Grove Church of Faith in Greenwood.

The annual MLK Day Parade is scheduled later that day at 3:30, and those wishing to participate have until Friday, Jan. 12, to sign up.
