Honoring the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“It is always the right time to do the right thing.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

The Annual Martin Luther King Day Parade is coordinated by the Zeta Sigma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, the oldest Black fraternity in America, founded in 1906. Dr. King was also an Alpha. This is one of the largest celebrations of its kind in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the United States. The parade is filled with dazzling floats, soulful high school bands, drill teams, colleges, fraternities, churches, organizations, peace groups and youth groups.

The parade, featuring marching bands and floats, will begin at 2 p.m. on Harbor Drive in downtown San Diego.

Participants are asked to meet downtown by 1:30 p.m. in the staging area near the County Administration Building at 1600 Pacific Highway and look for the USD Toreros Bus. Please wear any USD-themed clothing you may have.

Come and join thousands of others and help continue the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
