MLK Business and Civic Organization

The MLK Business and Civic Organization sponsors a parade it calls the Krewe of the Avenue that's largely for children and young people.

Children from 6 years old to college age participate, and the parade usually has 36 units - that's the limit allowed by the police department for any parade.

The daytime parade is usually held on Lundi Gras, the day before Fat Tuesday.
