The Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, cosponsored by PPNA and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board each year, builds community and diverse participation by creating a welcoming event that honors the civil rights movement and Dr. King’s leadership.

This celebration engages a diverse spectrum of community members including families and youth. Activities teach kids about Dr. King, West African drumming, tolerance, friendship, and creating neighborhood hope. Lunch is prepared by Youth Farm & Market and entertainment featuring Aztec dancers, a youth choir, West African drumming, and hip-hop.  Special youth activities include a civil rights internet scavenger hunt and West African drum lessons. “Feeding the Dream” food drive is apart of this great event – so please join the park in providing those in need with non-perishable food items! To volunteer, please contact Liz Kraus, Powderhorn Park Director, at (612) 370-4960. For more info:
