TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Parade will continue as planned, despite the cancellation of other events.

Multiple commemorative events such as a student leadership forum and walk of peace were canceled due to COVID.

The parade itself, however, is still scheduled for January 17.

Each year, over 100 entries participate in the Tulsa MLK Parade with themed floats, music and marchers.

Thousands of people are expected to attend the parade that begins at the corner of N. Detroit Ave. and John Hope Franklin Blvd., and meanders through historic Greenwood Avenue to Archer. The parade then ends near the ONEOK Field.

This year’s virtual parade begins at 11 a.m. and parade winners will be announced during the festivities.
