2018 MLK celebration parade to be held Monday in downtown Charleston

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — The YWCA of Greater Charleston will continue its celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with its annual parade on Monday, January 15.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. at the corner of Sumter at President at Burke High School and will wind down Sumter Street, King Street, and Calhoun Street – ending at Marion Square.

The parade is expected to wrap up by 11:30 p.m. The Parade Marshal is interim Charleston Police Chief Jerome Taylor.

“There aren’t any scheduled street closures,” according to Charleston City Police spokesman Charles Francis. “Side streets will reopen after parade participants pass by,” Francis added.

We’re told no parking restrictions along the parade route will take place. No vehicles should be towed under normal circumstances.

“Vehicles parked on the parade route will not be allowed to move until all parade units have passed,” Francis noted.
