Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has special resonance to Americans as well as to Wilmingtonians because (among other reasons) Dr. King was scheduled to travel to Wilmington for a speaking engagement on the day he was assassinated. Wilmington honors his memory with a week of events dedicated to him and his work ending with Monday's commemorative parade. Additional programs include assorted venues with food and entertainment, a gospel concert, banquets and speeches.  Please check their Website for the Parade Route and Listing of all the Festivities including the ever popular Sunday (01.20.2019) Band Battle and Showcase.

Parade Starts at Third and Hanover Streets.
