Join Horizon members and friends as we join in honoring Dr. King’s legacy and work toward the vision of beloved community. You may join our marching group (ages 11 and under must ride not walk) north of city hall on Rainwater Lane at 9:45 am. Or you may join a group of Horizon parade watchers who will park at Bea Salazar School at 2416 Keller Springs and watch the parade as it turns onto Kelly Boulevard. We will collect non-perishable food and personal items for Metrocrest Services in the parking lot.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.
