City Seal

The City of Key West invites the community to join in celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 17th, from noon until 4 p.m. at Nelson English Park at 300 Catherine Street.

The family-oriented celebration will include food, drink, games, and inspiring speeches, culminating in a march in honor of the civil rights pioneer.

Rev. Dr. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his work in the civil rights movement. He was assassinated in Memphis in 1968 for his dedication to this cause.

This nation's elected leaders are to continue to be challenged to bring forward the realization of Dr. King's dream unveiled 56 years ago and demonstrate that these leaders will work toward making the dream a reality by putting the needs of the people first.
