Celebrate our history as Dublin GA commemorates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 25th Annual MLK Parade. With over 175 floats, Dublin’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade is the second largest in Georgia!

Be Part of History

Make history with your own float as the parade marches down Telfair Street through Downtown Dublin to the Bellevue historic district.

In honor of Dr. King’s legacy of service through his philosophy of nonviolence, and service to humanity, the theme for this year’s parade is: Living the Dream: Building A Bridge To Unity

A Dublin Connection

On April 17, 1944, the Colored Elks Clubs of Georgia held their state convention at First African Baptist Church in Dublin and sponsored an essay contest. A 15 year old student at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta delivered a speech entitled “The Negro and the Constitution.” Little did the audience realize they were witnessing the first public speech by Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., and the start of the Civil Rights Movement.
