The City of LaGrange wants to advise citizens of several street closings in anticipation of the 2024 MLK, Jr. Parade in downtown LaGrange Saturday, January 13th.

The parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. but streets surrounding the parade route will begin closing at 12:45 p.m.

This year the parade route will begin and end at the LaGrange High School parking lot, 100 Hunnicutt Place. The route will go through North Greenwood Street, West Haralson Street, Church Street, Broome Street then Ridley Avenue back to North Greenwood. It will be the same route as the annual Christmas Parade.

This year’s theme is “Living the Dream – It Starts With Me.” The Grand Marshal of the Parade is Maria Harris. Harris is the owner of Blessed Realty and the President of the Troup County Board of Realtors.

The parade is sponsored every year by the Zeta Phi Beta sorority, Theta Xi Zeta chapter. This year, there will be a non-profit mini-fair on Lafayette Square immediately following the parade.

The City of LaGrange will be carrying the parade LIVE on the city’s Facebook page at facebook.com/lagrangegagov.
