MLK Holiday Parade in OKC
Honor an iconic American hero with a celebration of love and equality at the MLK Holiday Parade and Celebration in OKC. Organized by the OKC Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Coalition, the parade will include a full day of events capped off with a parade featuring floats, vehicles and peaceful marchers, all rallying around this year’s theme, “A Time for Change Is Now.”
Representing the spirit of the modern Civil Rights movement, the day’s events begin at 9am with a silent march from the Freedom Center at NE 26th and MLK along 23rd Street to the Oklahoma History Center for the Bell Ringing Ceremony at 11am. Just after noon, the Annual King Holiday Program will begin at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in the historic Deep Deuce District. Around 2pm, the parade will begin at St. Paul’s and wind its way through Bricktown and into downtown OKC.
