2020 Rev Dr Martin Luther King, Jr Parade Instructions

This year your Branch will once again march in celebration of the birth of Reverend Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. Please come out and join your Branch in honoring one of the great leaders in the history of the struggle for civil rights, not to mention one of the great leaders in American and World history.

Not a Branch member? March with us anyway — all are welcome! You may join right at the parade, but even if you’re not ready to join, we want you with us.

We are asking folks to wear either their purple NAACP San Diego Branch t-shirts or their black and gold ACT-SO t-shirts. If you don’t have a shirt, come as you are! You can buy a shirt at the parade, or march in whatever feels best to you.

Here are the final details:

Let us know you’re coming: RSVP via Eventbrite

Want to help us decorate our ride? Arrive by 10:00am to 1600 Harbor Drive; text 619-567-9149 for precise information on where the decorating is happening.

Arrive by 1pm to march in the parade; meet at the fountain. NAACP members will be at the Guardian of Water round fountain on the Bay side of the County Administration Building, 1600 Harbor Drive, and will guide you to where we will march.

If you can’t find us, ask Parade officials for NAACP San Diego Branch, Division 1, Position 21. We’re between San Diego Pride and Bethel Baptist Church, if that helps.

Consider using transit! Parking around the parade is difficult. Consider taking the trolley or coaster; get off either at the Santa Fe Station or the County Center Station.

We’re looking forward to seeing YOU there!
