The Martin Luther King Kingdom Day Parade has been celebrated for the last 20 years and over a million people take to the streets of Los Angeles to remember the life and works of the great man.
The 2007 parade theme is, "we have not forgotten, the fight is not over", and it commences on Martin Luther King Blvd at Crenshaw and lasts for two miles until Western. It includes more than 150 floats, 20 drill teams, ten dance groups, celebrities aplenty and the bombastic tunes of a military marching band.
Local vendors and restaurants spill out onto the street in the carnival atmosphere. Streets around the parade area are closed off at 8.30am, so if you're planning to drive, you'd better get up early.
For more information on the life of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., please visit the MLK website.
The parade officially gets under way at 11 AM.
