Warfield Center MLK March & Celebration: Monday, January 18, 2010

March and Festival

Monday, January 18, 2010
UT program starts at 9AM. Capitol program starts at 10AM.
MLK Festival @ Huston- Tillotson immediately follows march

To celebrate the national MLK day holiday, the Heritage Council is sponsoring the Community March. The purpose of this 16th annual Community March is to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy while uplifting diversity and multi-culturalism in our city. The MLK Community March kicks off at 9 a.m. with a short program at the MLK Statue on the University of Texas campus. We will then march to the Capitol for a brief program. Thereafter, we will march to the historic Huston-Tillotson University, where exciting activities are planned.

The Heritage Council is planning a Cultural Festival which will begin after the March and last until 2 p.m.; it will include all types of vendors and local musical artists to make this year’s celebration the best ever! A vendor application can be downloaded below for those interested in purchasing booth space. For questions and information, please contact Carol Wright by email or by telephone at (512) 323-6773 ext. 102.

In previous years, the march has drawn up to an estimated 15,000 people and we are anticipating even more individuals to unite for this special occasion in January 2010. All businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals are invited to march with us and celebrate Dr. King’s legacy.
