2013 MLK King Day Parade in Los Angeles Leimert Park on Saturday, Jan. 19

The 32nd annual Kingdom Day Parade 2013 is SATURDAY Jan. 19, 2013. That seems an odd date but perhaps more fun to have on Saturday rather than Monday (MLK's birthday is Jan. 15).

The “Kingdom Day Parade” starts at Western heads down King to Crenshaw takes a left and goes down to Leimert Park Village, where a festival ensues.
