The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Steering Committee, Inc., (Dr. MLK, Jr. Committee) proudly presents the Annual Dr. MLK Jr. Parade of the City of Sanford which honors Dr. King's legacy.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. parade is scheduled for Monday, January 1 5, 2024 in the Goldsboro community. The parade begins at Crooms Academy of Information Technology High School, 2200 Historic Goldsboro Boulevard (formerly West 13th Street) Sanford, Florida at 10 am.

The Dr. MLK Committee asks for your continued support in our efforts to present a parade with integrity and dignity. As a way to improve the quality of the parade, the Dr. MLK, Jr. Committee is encouraging more decorative floats, vehicles, walkers, bands, singing groups, and dance groups to represent what the day means — brotherhood/sisterhood, brotherly/sisterly love, nonviolence and service to mankind to help him up and not down. Together, we can make this the best and most memorable parade and celebration. The parade participation entry fee is $15 for any motorized vehicle or walking group. The entry fee does not apply to public or private schools.
