The MLK Parade was a dream come true for everyone
By Tricia Bailey, OurTown National News Editor,

The intensity was very high in expectation for the MLK celebrated annual Parade and Commemorative Service on Monday January 16, 2017. 

The weather was crisp and sunny on Auburn Ave. in Atlanta,GA  as the supporters lined the streets while shopping at the various vendors for clothing, posters, jewelry, and  lots of food to eat.  

The Ebenezer Baptist Church was open  for service to usher in the families, friends, visitors, and dignitaries. for the MLK program.

Once the service was completed, everyone started lining up for the spectacular parade, which consisted of marching, dancing, rallying, and supporters of civil rights. 

It was a sea of different people regardless of their color, nationality, gender, creed, or religion, coming together for one common denominator, and that was the love we all shared for the man of great honor,  Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
