Kingdom Day Parade

All ages

One of the nation's largest events celebrating the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Kingdom Day Parade generally attracts more than a million people to view the procession that steps off onto Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard at Western.

The parade continues two miles until Crenshaw, then turns down Crenshaw and ends at Vernon. There is a post-parade festival at Leimert Park.

More than 150 floats (three times the number in the Rose Parade!), 20 drill teams, ten dance groups, celebrities, politicians, and military marching bands mark the occasion. Streets around the parade area are closed from 8:30am. This year's theme is "Equality For All Humanity, Our Next Step."
