MLK parade draws crowd despite cold

Participants and spectators braved the sunny yet cold and windy weather for the annual MLK Parade on Monday, Jan. 21. 

With 64 vehicles, floats, and walking groups, the community was well represented by city and county government, military, fire departments, churches, civic groups, beauty queens, girl scouts, and our own Claxton High School marching band.
