MLK Day Parades in Houston

Posted: Feb. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Melissa Phillip/Houston Chron.

Houston, as it does every year, held two parades in honor of the historic civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. One of the pared will be held in Downtown, while the other is held in midtown. Both began at the same time, marking a celebration of the 45th anniversary of this much-missed leader of men.

Houstonians may dream of the day when both of the city's Martin Luther King Jr. Day parades are united in harmony, but for now both events continue to offer their own celebrations to honor the slain civil rights leader.

The two parades start at the same time Monday. One is downtown, the other in Midtown.

The Black Heritage Society is sponsoring the 35th annual "Original" MLK Parade beginning at 10 a.m. on the corner of Texas and Jackson in downtown.
