Monday Afternoon in Downtown Mesa: Mesa Martin Luther King Jr. Day Festival at the Mesa Arts Center
We were in downtown Mesa at the Mesa Arts Center on this cloudy, cool afternoon for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Festival,
a community celebration featuring music, dance, food, retail and organization booths, a youth area for kids and information on job opportunities, health, and outreach programs.
We had a terrific time watching the entertainment, checking out the various booths, and talking to people.
We're old enough to remember the heyday of the civil rights movement. In our teenage years Martin Luther King Jr. was important to us,
so we're grateful we got to spend this Martin Luther King Jr. with everyone in downtown Mesa.
