Event Description

The City of Long Beach, in partnership with Sixth District Councilwoman Dr. Suely Saro and the 2022 Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade & Celebration Community Advisory Committee, is inviting the community to take part in the 34th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade and Celebration.

The 2022 festivities will begin with the parade kickoff at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Anaheim Street, followed by the park celebration which will include a main stage with multicultural performances, a health and wellness area, a youth area, food and merchandise vendors, and information booths.

This year’s theme, “Live the Dream,” was created by the Sixth District Council Office in conjunction with the 2022 Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade & Celebration Community Advisory Committee, comprised of multicultural leaders within the district.

“It is important we capture the actions of today and shine awareness on the fact that the dream is here. It’s alive. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy is visible in the several reckonings our country has witnessed over the last few years,” said Councilwoman Saro. “But we must continue the journey to justice and equality for all, as we revive Dr. King’s nonviolent movement.”
