On Saturday, January 13th, the City of Kissimmee and the community will come together to pay homage to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a Unity Celebration at the scenic Kissimmee Lakefront Park, from noon to 4 pm. This vibrant event, hosted by the City of Kissimmee, and sponsored by Kissimmee Utility Authority and Toho Water Authority, invites the community to embrace diversity and unity through a shared appreciation of culture, music, and engagement.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an iconic civil rights leader, championed the values of equality, love, and justice, inspiring countless individuals worldwide. His peaceful approach to combating racial segregation changed the course of history and led to the creation of Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday observed on the third Monday in January, close to his birthday on January 15th.

At the Unity Celebration on January 13th, experience the soul-stirring music of the House of Blues Gospel Band and indulge in an array of culinary treats from a selection of food trucks. Explore unique crafts with local vendors, immerse in inspiring art, and seize the opportunity to capture your aspirations at the MyDream photo booth. Children can revel in fun and learning at the KUA Kids Power Zone.

This event is more than just a celebration; it’s a reflection of Dr. King’s vision for a community where everyone has a place, a dream, and a voice. It’s about building the “Beloved Community” Dr. King envisioned—a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one’s fellow human beings.
