CLEARWATER ― The city’s 37th annual celebration of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will look a bit different than the celebrations of years past.
Instead of a march that runs from the North Greenwood Recreation Complex to Coachman Park, the city is planning a route that will run from the recreation center to nearby Buccaneer Field.
According to the Clearwater/Upper Pinellas Branch of the NAACP, the march will start at the recreation complex’ Aquatic Center. Then it will run to N. Palmetto Street; west to Pennsylvania Avenue; north to Marshall Street; east to Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and then south to Buccaneer Field at 905 N Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.
The celebration will include the customary breakfast at the recreation center starting at 9 a.m. Monday. The march will start at 10:30 a.m., and at noon there will be a rally at Buccaneer Field.
Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for children younger than 10.
Here’s the city’s full news release about the parade.
