One of my favorite events each year is the OKC Martin Luther King Jr. parade. It has traditionally been held at the corner of 23rd Street and ML King Blvd, but for the past few years the City of OKC has tried to move the event to downtown OKC. I went to the 2022 parade in downtown OKC and while it was pretty good, it was nothing like the “unofficial parade” held at the original parade spot.
So for 2023 I decided to join my friends at Tombo Racing for the “unofficial” ML King parade and skip the “official” parade. I liked the unofficial parade much, much better. No permits, very few cops, just a lot of people having a good time.
