On the third Monday of January each year, the entire nation takes pause to honor the life, memory, impact and service of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A National Holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day sees a variety of types of commemorations across the United States. Guthrie will have its yearly parade through downtown beginning at 10a.m. on Monday, January 16th.
The parade route will begin at the Scottish Rite Temple, west on Oklahoma Street to just west of city Hall. The City of Guthrie Mayor Chuck Burtcher will serve as the Parade Marshall.
