This Monday, Jan. 15, 2018, is the date on which the federal holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement is to be celebrated. The holiday falls on the third Monday of January, which happens to be on King’s real birthday.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have been 89 years old. In honor of King, the Naples’ annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade will begin at 11:00 a.m. (Monday, January 15) and will follow the traditional parade route beginning at Broad Avenue South and Third Street South before making its way to Fifth Avenue South. The parade will end with a celebration at Cambier Park on Eighth Street South from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
From all of us at John R. Wood, we hope you have a wonderful weekend and wish you a happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
