Applications are being accepted from groups, businesses, and organizations that are interested in participating 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. parade. The theme for the 2018 parade is “Celebrate the Dream”. The “Celebrate the Dream” team is composed of community volunteers. It is our desire to make this an inclusive parade focusing on the dream of Dr. King by offering a true float experience for attendees. Entries will be considered based on keeping the theme in mind, thoughtfulness, and creativity.
The parade will take place in downtown Fort Smith, Monday, January 15, 2018 at 11:30 am (immediately following UAFS Martin Luther King Jr. activities). Although the parade is independent of UAFS Martin Luther King Jr. activities, there will be collaboration with UAFS on communication/logistics from the university campus to the downtown parade.
