Hundreds come out to celebrate and remember Martin Luther King, Jr.

OCOEE, Fla. -

Hundreds turned out to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today for the city's annual parade and celebration in Ocoee.

The parade kicked off at 10 a.m. and took just over an hour to wind its way down Clarke Road to the West Oaks Mall.

Parade-goers attended a ceremony remembering Dr. King with music and readings from some of his most famous speeches, including his "I Had A Dream" address.

Orange County Judge Belvin Perry was the keynote speaker, where he discussed the "color of justice."

He told Local 6 there is no color to justice, rather, it's a "mosaic."

This is the eighth year for the parade.

Other parades were held in Sanford and for the first time in Kissimmee.
