Report: DeKalb NAACP's MLK Jr. Day Parade Relocates from Stone Mountain City

The 11th annual parade will march down MLK King Jr. Parkway in Lithonia, according to Crossroads News.

The DeKalb NAACP's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade will not be held in downtown Stone Mountain city this year, according to a report in Crossroads News.

"I’m sad to see it go," Susan Ryles, executive director of Main Street Stone Mountain and the Downtown Development Authority, told Patch. "We were not aware it had moved it until recently."

The 11th annual parade, on Jan. 21, will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Ray of Hope Christian Church and march down Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway (Snapfinger Road) in Lithonia, the article states.

"I'm glad the parade isn't going away. I think that it's an important function," Stone Mountain city councilwoman Susan Coletti told Patch.

Several school bands including Stone Mountain and MLK Jr. will participate, Crossroads reports.
