Entertainment, Family Activities and Lunch!
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, cosponsored by PPNA and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board each year, builds community and diverse participation by creating a welcoming event that honors the civil rights movement and Dr. King’s leadership. This celebration engages a diverse spectrum of community members including families and youth. Activities teach kids about Dr. King, West African drumming, tolerance, friendship, and creating neighborhood hope.
Lunch is prepared by Youth Farm & Market and entertainment featuring Aztec dancers, a youth choir, West African drumming, and hip-hop. Special youth activities include a civil rights internet scavenger hunt and West African drum lessons.
“Feeding the Dream” food drive is apart of this great event – so please join the park in providing those in need with non-perishable food items!
