Monday January 20 is officially known as Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Dallas actually hosted two parades in his honor for 2013. This year marks the 45th anniversary of MLK’s death, thus making this year a more significant milestone over previous years. Floats, bands and customized cars were displayed to the gathered crowds.
