SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — Springdale will join the nation in honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a parade through the city on Monday (January 20).
The 3rd Annual Celebration Parade kicked off at Luther George Park in Springdale.
Alice Gachuzo- Colin started the tradition in 2018 and said she hopes events like this inspire a love for others.
“Sometimes when you see something, it really strikes something in your heart to really think and reflect,” Gachuzo-Colin said. “I need my community to come together, not just on one day. But every day.”
Gachuzo-Colin said the event requires a lot of planning, but that she’s looking forward to doing it all over again next year.
