There will be two events to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Springfield on Monday. The Springfield Branch of the NAACP will host a MLK March starting at the Jordan Valley Ice Park. Unite Publication will host the Springfield Multicultural Festival.

The march kicks off at 8 a.m. outside of the Jordan Valley Ice Park and the march will begin at 9 a.m. The event is called “Creating the Beloved Community.” President Kai Sutton said Dr. King Jr.’s words are the inspiration for the march.

The 25th annual Springfield Multicultural Festival will start this Monday at 12:30 p.m. virtually and will showcase different cultures through music and dance performances. This will be the second year the event has gone virtual.
