South Los Angeles celebrates MLK Day with 39th Kingdom Day Parade

Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be marked by the 39th Kingdom Day Parade, service projects, a festival in Leimert Park and a Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The 3-mile parade began on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, just west of Arlington Avenue, proceeded west to Crenshaw Boulevard and then south to Vernon Avenue, and concluded near the K Line’s Leimert Park Station. The theme is “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop, Going to the Promised Land.”

The grand marshal will be Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly Mitchell, who represents the Second District, which includes the parade route. Two of Mitchell’s fellow supervisors, board Chair Lindsey P. Horvath and Hilda Solis, are also scheduled to participate in the parade, along with Mayor Karen Bass and Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
