Warm weather in Oklahoma yesterday made this year’s Martin Luther King Day parade in Tulsa bigger than usual. Temperatures stayed in the low 70’s, attracting one of the largest crowds the parade has ever seen.
More than 200 groups and organizations signed up to be in the parade, which travels along a 1-mile route in downtown Tulsa, starting at the Oklahoma State University Tulsa campus. The parade featured floats, marching bands, and other performers, and lasted for 2 and a half hours.
The parade’s path this year was shorter than usual in order for police to be able to keep an eye on participants and minimize fighting. Only one fight broke out yesterday, but no arrests were made.
The Oklahoma personal injury lawyers of the Abel Law Firm are proud to support the community in successful events like yesterday’s Martin Luther King Day parade in Tulsa. Read more about the parade here.
