  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has special resonance to Americans as well as to Wilmingtonians because (among other reasons) Dr. King was scheduled to travel to Wilmington for a speaking engagement on the day he was assassinated. Wilmington honors his memory with a week of events dedicated to him and his work ending with Monday's commemorative parade. Additional programs include assorted venues with food and entertainment, a gospel concert, banquets and speeches.  Please check their Website for the Parade Route and Listing of all the Festivities.
