On Monday, January 15th, 2018, the Houston Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade Foundation, Inc. and Black Heritage Society, home to the nation’s first-ever MLK, Jr. birthday parade celebration, will ring in the new year and historical milestone at the 40th Annual “Original” MLK, Jr. Birthday Parade in Downtown Houston at corner of Texas & Crawford, located in front of Minute Maid Park.
