MLK Day Parade draws thousands to downtown Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - Thousands showed up in downtown Las Vegas for the 35th Annual Martin Luther King Day parade. It's part of a series of events honoring Dr. King legacy of promoting equality and human rights.

"I want everyone to learn unity, old or young. I think that's the most important message, that we come together not just one day out of the year, but anytime," said Temphest Blue, parada spectator.

The parade started at 10 a.m. at Fourth Street and headed north ending at Ogden Avenue and featured a diverse array of parade entries, including floats, marching bands, dancers and motorcades with both cars and motorcycles.

"Living the Dream: The Movement Continues" was the parade's theme this year.

This is one of the biggest MLK parades in the country.

MGM Resorts International has supported the parade since 2003 and this is the seventh consecutive year the company is the presenting sponsor of the event.
