Celebrations marking the birthday of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. continued in Laurel Saturday with an annual parade along Beacon Street. Several marching bands took part, including those from Laurel, Hattiesburg and Prentiss high schools.
A few churches also entered floats.
A number of Jr. ROTC detachments marched and the event also featured a few dance teams, motorcycles and horses.
"He was a great leader and it's just nice for us to get out and celebrate his life," said Birdie Arrington, one of the hundreds of people who watched the parade.
"We come out to honor Dr. King in this manner," said Herman Smith of Laurel, who also viewed the parade. "I think he deserves it and more," Smith said.
"He was a great man," said Sarah Jones, also of Laurel. "He helped everybody, he loved everybody. He was a good civil rights worker," she said.
The celebration concludes Monday in Laurel with a day of community service.
