The city of Kissimmee is ready to celebrate diversity with its sixth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Celebration Jan. 18.

It’s a highly anticipated free event of the year with fun for the whole family.

The day begins with a parade at 10 a.m. traveling through the heart of historic downtown. It will feature floats from local organizations and groups along Broadway, Dakin Avenue and Lakeview Drive.

 “It’s a fun time for the community to come together no matter where you are from,” said Kissimmee’s Public Information Officer Melissa Zayas.

One of the highlights of the event is the music featured at the festival beginning at 11 a.m. at Kissimmee Lakefront Park. Mary Wilson, a singer who was with the Supremes, is the headliner for the event. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 1988.
