The man behind the holiday would have been proud as scores of local residents turned out Saturday for the city’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade and festivities. More than 20 entries filled the parade route,which began at Zion Fountain A.M.E. Church and ended at the John L. Fisher Community Center.
