King for a Day

For naysayers that think this place can’t sustain tradition, chew on this: the Dr. Martin Luther King Festival and March – which starts at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church and proceeds a couple of miles through central Phoenix before posting up for a celebration at Margaret T. Hance Park, 1134 North Central Avenue – has been going off for what seems like forever. On Monday, January 17, it will once again for the 2011 version of MLK Day.
