Two of the traditional highlights of Tulsa’s Martin Luther King Day commemoration have been canceled due to pandemic concerns, but the parade will continue as planned, organizers said.
The 43rd annual Martin Luther King Commemorative Parade, set for 11 a.m. Monday, was to be preceded Sunday by the annual Walk in Peace and the MLK Interfaith Community Service.
Chris Payne, MLK Commemorative Society communications chairman, said officials believe that the parade, however, can be held safely. (He is also the Chief Communications Officer for Union Public Schools.)
Reminder: All Union schools and offices, including the Enrollment and Education Service Center, will be closed Monday, January 17, for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
