ORLANDO, Fla. — The 2022 Downtown Orlando Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade hosted by the Southwest Orlando Junior Chamber has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
The 38th annual parade was scheduled to take place Saturday morning starting at the Downtown Orlando Courthouse and continuing to Lake Eola Park.
Instead, they’re organizing a parade showcase event to be held at the outside venue at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts formerly known as the “Front Yard.”
The reimagined event is free to the public and will be hosted by local comedian Rod Z.
It will include food trucks, dancers, comedy, and community organizations that would have been featured in the parade.
The parade showcase is scheduled for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It’s free to attend but participants are asked to register.
