Here is what you need to know:

What: CAIR-Houston has registered the Muslim community to be part of this year’s MLK Day Parade. We would love for everyone in the Greater Houston Muslim community to participate.

Register Online: Anyone who would like to be part of the Muslim group in the MLK Parade MUST register online. This is so we have an accurate count of the number of people who will be in our group. Anyone who shows up without registering will be sadly turned away. RSVP to march with CAIR-Houston.

Dress: It’s January so dress warm and appropriately for the weather. We encourage all the participants to dress however you like. We encourage you to wear cultural clothing to the event.

Can I Bring Signs & Flags: Yes, please feel free to bring flags, appropriate signs, and other decorations to celebrate the day. Note, the CAIR-Houston team will review all signs before allowing them into the parade.

How Far do we March: The parade distance is a little over a mile. Wear comfortable shoes. The parade moves fairly slowly so it’s not difficult for children or the elderly to keep up.

What Time Should I Arrive: We encourage everyone to come no later then 9:00 A.M. Coming early will make it easier for you to find parking and find our group. The march begins at 10:00 A.M. sharp. If you arrive by then it’s too late and you will have a difficult time joining the group.

Will there be anything to eat: You are welcome to bring snacks and water bottles.

Can I Organize my School or Muslim Organization: Yes, we would love to see Islamic Schools and other Muslim organizations participate. If your school or organization would like to partner with us please email ahernandez@cair.com. We will include your logo in our flyer and social media promotions. However, everyone must RSVP online using our system so we can keep an accurate count.

Can I Bring a Stroller: Yes, strollers are allowed in the parade.

Can I Bring Confetti: No, confetti or anything else that can be thrown will not be allowed in the parade.What if I Have More Questions: Please email Ambreen Hernandez at ahernandez@cair.com or call 713-838-2247.
