On January 21st, the 19th Annual MLK Grand Parade in Houston will take place. The yearly event memorializes civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his historic vision of racial equality in our country. The MLK Parade Foundation raises awareness each year with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Celebration on the third Monday in January.  Each year the celebration has grown and this year an estimated 300,000 spectators are expected to gather to view the professionally designed floats, marching bands and 150+ performing groups taking part in the day’s events. Later the same afternoon head over to Joe Kelly Butler Stadium for the 12th Annual MLK Battle of the Bands where 20 nationally acclaimed high school marching bands will be performing.
