The MLK Jr. Day committee of Pike County is looking for community members to take part in the Jan. 18 celebration. Acting director Regina Bridges is looking for motorcycles, antique cars, horses and others. The parade is free to take part in and will start at 11 a.m.
"I'm trying to double the entrants this year to make the parade longer to go around United Bank," said Bridges.
This year's theme for the 16th annual MLK celebration and parade in Pike County is "Is the Dream is Alive or Dormant," and will be discussed during an hour-long program at Mr. Hope Baptist Church.
