Residents of all ages bundled up and lined the sidewalks of Longview’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard on Saturday, for a community wide celebration.
“When you have opportunities like this where you know the community will be out you try to go and support,” says Brandis Jamerson, a Longview teacher. “You can be a part of that change or a part of that positive energy."
A parade lead by members of Longview High School's ROTC, including first responders and free treats, came to an end at Broughton recreation center. Community members of all ages gathered there in honor of King.
