Cool temperatures did nothing to keep people from turning out for the 28th Annual Martin Luther King Jr.  Grande Parade in Midtown on Monday, January 17, 2022. From marching bands to floats in bright colors,  more than 300 performance groups delivered a joyous tribute to the memory of the civil rights leader who worked so hard for peace. Theme of the day: Social Inclusion. (Photos by Violeta Alvarez)
