GARLAND, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The City of Garland has partnered with the NAACP to host its 33rd annual MLK Day Parade.
The cars stretched for miles. It started on Dairy Road at Garden Dr. and ended at the Granville Arts Center.
Spectators bundled up in their warm clothes, lined the parade route and honored the civil rights legend.
NAACP Garland chapter board member Timothy Robinson said although it was cold, he showed up because the cold weather is miniscule compared to the hardships Dr. King faced .
“If our ancestors can go out and fight back against police brutality, animals attacking them, all these different things that we’ve been through, we can go out and endure some cold weather to go out and celebrate his legacy,” he said. he declares.
If King were still alive, he would be 93 years old.
