DALLAS — Dallas’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade and Collin County’s March for King Parade have been postponed due to inclement weather next Monday.

A strong cold front is set to arrive Sunday evening which could send temperatures into the teens.

ERCOT, the operator of Texas’ power grid, has also issued a weather watch. ERCOT has emphasized that grid conditions are expected to be normal, though, and it has not called for energy conservation.

The City of Dallas has rescheduled the parade for 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 20. Collin County and the City of Plano have not yet announced when it will reschedule its parade.

The NAACP posted a statement on its website, “We are eager to march together in the spirit of unity and justice, and we look forward to sharing this experience with you in the days to come.”

Hundreds of floats, bands, drill teams, local businesses, and community leaders are registered to march in the Dallas parade that is scheduled to begin and end at Fair Park. Find details about the MLK parade and a map of the route here.

The parade will start at Fair Park Gate 6 at MLK Jr. Boulevard and Robert B. Cullum Boulevard. It will proceed down MLK Boulevard to Atlanta Street turning south, then turning east on Pennsylvania Avenue returning to Fair Park.
