In its 34th year, St. Petersburg’s “MLK DREAM BIG” PARADE is the nation’s longest-running parade honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In 2016, SCLC chose Toriano Parker and Advantage Village Academy to bring a fresh direction to the historic St. Petersburg event, ensuring it would continue to celebrate the vision of Dr. King with a new generation.
On Jan. 16, 2017, Advantage Village Academy (AVA) brought the rebranded 32nd Annual “MLK DREAM BIG” PARADE to a new route running west along 1st Avenue South starting at 3rd Street – as well as holding the inaugural “MLK DREAM BIG” 2018 FAMILY FUN DAY FESTIVAL at Tropicana Field.
Conceived to bring parents, children, caregivers, and youth together with community organizations and presenters, FAMILY FUN DAY expands St. Pete’s celebration of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National holiday with a lot of rides, games & food vendors for the entire family.
