The City of Lancaster is proud to sponsor the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. parade and ceremony that will be held on Saturday, January 25 at 11 am in historic downtown Lancaster.
The City of Lancaster is bringing back the parade to the city streets after 18 years to celebrate the ideals and life of Dr. King. Many are expected to line Main Street to commemorate Dr. King’s legacy of promoting equal rights. The theme for this year’s parade is “I Have a Dream.”
Parade Grand Marshal, Power 98’s No Limit Larry, aka, No Leezy and WSOC-TV reporter Tina Terry will lead the parade at 11:00 am beginning at Springs Street and Main Street and ending at Williams Street and Main. The parade celebration will feature bands from Lancaster and Fairfield County, social groups, church groups, non-profit organizations and more.
Following the parade, join No Limit Larry at Lancaster City Hall, located on Catawba Street, at noon for a moment of reflection, singing and celebrating. The winning “I Have A Dream” essay, by Lancaster County Middle and High Schools, will be read and the winners will be announced.
The parade and ceremony honors the immeasurable contributions of Dr. King. All ages are welcome!
