Event Details

The Southwest Orlando Jaycees cordially invites you to participate in the 34th Annual Downtown Orlando Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 10:00AM. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an integral part of the Civil Rights Movement which laid the foundation for the equality of treatment and opportunity enjoyed in America and around the world today. The theme for the 2018 parade celebration is “Remember, Celebrate, Act! King's His Voice, His Teaching and His Love for humanity.”

In remembrance of Dr. King's life and legacy we are soliciting a record number of participants for this Annual Holiday Parade. This year we expect an estimated 8000 spectators at the parade. We are hopeful that the 2018 parade and celebration will remind our attendees that “Without justice there can be no peace… for a community who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as those who help to perpetrate it.”

Participating in the event is not only fun but it also provides you with an excellent way to market your organization or business while celebrating a remarkable legacy of courage and unity in our community. We are asking all participants to embrace this year’s theme in their submissions. Because we all enjoy an eventful parade we are encouraging decorative floats and discouraging a traditional motorcade for this year’s parade. Entries are limited, so please note the application deadline date and submit your application with required attachments, as early as possible.

Parade Entry Deadline: Monday, January 2, 2018

On behalf of the Southwest Orlando Jaycees Parade Committee, we look forward to receiving your 2018 parade registration and thank you for your interest and participation. The registration fee is $100 for all single entry units and $25 for every additional motorized vehicle included in the entry {this does not apply to car/motorcycle clubs}. We ask that you visit us on the web and register for this event at
