Martin Luther King Day is
Monday, but Longview residents wanted to get a head start on the celebration.
Saturday morning they
braved brisk temperatures and held a march. People gathered and walked about a
mile to the Broughton Recreation Center where the celebration continued.
Longview police and fire departments escorted the marchers traveling north on Martin
Luther King Boulevard, and the event has grown so much over the years it's
pretty much become a parade.
