Polk Democrats will participate in the Winter Haven Martin Luther King Jr Parade, Saturda
Tue, Jan 9, 2018
The Polk County DEC will be participating in the 39th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Parade on Saturday, January 13, 2018.
The Winter Haven MLK Parade has continued to grow and improve in quality and content since its inception. The 2018 parade will again move along its same parade route in Winter Haven, beginning at City Hall, 551 3rd St NW, and ending at Hilltop Church of Christ, 2100 Ave T NE, Winter Haven, FL
Lineup@ 8:00 AM SHARP!
The parade begins at 10:00 SHARP!
This year's theme is "MLK50 Forward: Together We Win with Love for Humanity"
The parade route is approximately 2.4 miles.
Large crowds are expected to line the parade route. Participation in this event is not only educational but, great fun in bringing together all facets of the community and it also provides us with an excellent way to promote our organization.
Please let me know if you're interested in participating in the parade. We will have walkers carrying our banner and handing out candy to the viewing audience. And for those unable to walk the parade route. I'm soliciting volunteers who would like to drive their own vehicles with the proper signage identifying our unit as the Polk County DEC.
We will discuss this further at our upcoming DEC on Monday.
Thank you for all that you do!
