Looking for the best things to do in Los Angeles MLK weekend? Here are some events and activities to add to your list for this holiday weekend.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is 'What are you doing for others?'" This weekend, families can join together to answer that question by participating in the MLK Day of Service. A day spent giving back is just one way to honor Dr. King's memory. This year the larger gatherings are once again put on hold, but we can still honor his memory at thought-provoking exhibits, virtual concerts and celebrations, and even by parading through Minecraft

Plus, discover where to Find Snow near Los Angeles, find the best Free Things To Do in Los Angeles in January, where to go sand sledding before the berms disappear, and more.

Be sure to check with the venue for its COVID guidelines and requirements before heading out to any event. Many places in LA now require guests to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test; some events are getting canceled or postponed at the last minute due to the latest COVID surge.
