Murfreesboro, Tenn. (WTVF) – A march will take place in Murfreesboro on Monday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
It will be a 1.5-mile march and will go down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, formerly known as Mercury Boulevard, for the first time since its renaming in 2021.
The march was canceled last year due to snow, which is why this is the first year they’ll get a chance to holiday on the newly named street.
Registration and lining up for the march will begin at 11:00 a.m. at Central Magnet School on East Main Street.
The march begins at noon on Middle Tennessee Boulevard, then turns south on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and ends at the Patterson Park Community Center, where an event will take place in honor of the civil rights leader.
The march has become one of the largest and longest marches in Rutherford County.
