Coastwide MLK Jr. Celebration Parade in Biloxi

Marching down Division Street celebrating the man who had a dream, the Coastwide Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Parade took place this afternoon in Biloxi.

East Biloxi was full of joy and cheer, celebrating MLK with beads, candy, and band performances across the Coast.

Several organizations showed their support for love, peace, and community. Paradegoers not only enjoyed the music, but also a wide variety of food truck.

Janiyah Williams was excited to be at the parade because she’s a big fan of Dr. King.  “Martin Luther King. Jr, he wanted people to be happy and live in peace.”

The festivities lasted in Biloxi all day long with a Battle of the Bands competition at MGM Park and then a block party on Division Street.
