(English) January – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration

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! To volunteer, please contact Liz Kraus, Powderhorn Park Director, at (612) 370-4960. For more info:
