Few Americans have a legacy to equal or approach Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His vision for equality through peace provided giant steps on the road to progress. Celebrate his life and legacy with the annual MLK Day Parade, which will take place in Beaumont on Saturday, January 14, 2023. The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. near Alice Keith park on the corner of East Virginia and East Lavaca Street and ends at Martin Luther King Middle School. 

MLK Parade

Parade route is as follows: North on Highland from East Lavaca to Irving, Irving to Washington, west on Washington to Orange, north on Orange to Royal, and west on Royal to MLK Middle School on Avenue A. 

If you can't make it to the parade, plan a visit to Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in downtown Beaumont, which features a commemorative plaque and statue to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. The stone display wall includes excerpts from King's legendary, "I Have a Dream" speech. Plenty of parking is also available on site.
