"Happy Martin Luther King Day!" and "Good Morning, Happy MLK day!" Just a few of the phrases shouted this morning at the Martin Luther King Parade! The weather was great today. Actually a gorgeous day outside. Sunny. 50's. Much better than the previous years. Last year it snowed. The year before it rained. So a spring-like day for a beautiful parade honoring a wonderful man who made such a difference in our nation. Everyone along the parade route was so nice! And all the people in the parade were so happy and cheerful. WVLT's Alan Williams and Meteorologist Megan Campbell joined me as we walked down Martin Luther King Boulevard. The three of us started the parade, just behind politicians including county commissioners, Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale, State Senator Tim Burchett, and the Grand Marshall of the parade Victor Ashe. Instead of riding in a car this year, the WVLTers walked the 2 miles. Which was a great idea!
