MLK Day Parade to begin at 4 p.m., Monday, Jan. 20
Center's Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade is set for a 4 p.m. Monday start on Jan. 20, according to parade chair Joyce Johnson. Due to streetscape construction in progress around the downtown square, the route will be a little different this year, she said. The route will start in the parking lot of the Center U.S. Post Office, turn right on Cora Street; left onto Shelbyville Street and proceed down Shelbyville Street to Martin Luther King Drive and onto the Bright Morning Star Baptist Church at 625 MLK Drive, Johnson said. The route was unanimously approved by the Center City Council at a Monday evening meeting.
