The 43rd Annual Community Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Celebration will take place on Sunday, January 14, from 11:30 AM at Maka`eo Pavilion, at Old Airport in Kailua-Kona. Free lunch will be served for the celebrants at 12:00 PM. The program will start at 1:15PM with music, songs, and dance, and artwork from local school children. This is a free annual celebration that is open to the public to mark the anniversary of Dr. King’s birthday and to honor his life, work, and legacy.
