About This Event: 

Let's walk in San Antonio's Martin Luther King parade/march. It is the largest march in the nation with appr 300,000 participants. We participated last year and are looking forward to taking part againl

The March is 2.75 miles and starts at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Academy, travels up Martin Luther King Drive, and ends at Pittman Sullivan Park, all on the City’s historic East Side. To maintain the spirit of the March and for the safety of participants, motorcycles, cars and other motor vehicles are not allowed in the March procession.
