South Bay hosts MLK parade and gospel celebration

SOUTH BAY — The city’s first Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade and Gospel Celebration, put on by Beginning Outreach Ministry and the KTM Foundation Inc., was a success.

Celebrity singer and songwriter Shirley Murdock graced the audience with her songs of joy. Anquette Leverne opened the stage up for her; The GBoys danced and gospel rapped for everyone. The host, comedian Shangles, kept the laughs going around, and DJ Obadiah had all the sounds just right.

We give a special thank-you for the support and sponsorship to Christ Fellowship Belle Glade Church. Thank you to Ed Kerr and his Public Works team from South Bay, Healthier Glades, Bougie Closet, 1Booji Customs and Inafec Photos.

The parade participants included: Rosenwald Drumline and Commissioner Taranza McKelvin, South Bay Jaguars Youth Football, Healthier Glades, Muck City Tackle who donated fishing rods to the kids in attendance, Palm Beach County Rescue Unit 74 South Bay and the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office.

We thank everyone who came out and supported this event and look forward to seeing you all next year.
