After missing last year because of Covid, inclement weather has caused cancellation of the 2022 Martin Luther King Jr. Parade.

Organizers posted on Facebook Sunday: “The MLK Memorial Tribute is scheduled for noon today (01/17) at Overcoming Believers Church. We will recognize leaders in our community along with remarks from our keynote speaker, Pastor Jamal Bryant.”

Knox County Schools, banks and most government offices are closed today for the King holiday. For the latest information from the MLK Commemorative Commission, go here or here.
