The annual Charleston parade starts at 11 a.m., and many public institutions are closed for the day in remembrance of the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

(If you can't make it out to watch the parade, fret not News 2 will broadcast it live this morning at 11 a.m.)

Speaking of legacy's, yesterday the 38th annual Dr. King Tri-County Ecumenical Service was held at Morris Street Baptist Church in Charleston. The service served not only as a reminder but an opportunity to give attention to those that have helped fight against injustice.

The Post and Courier was there and has a nice story on the service, they also have details on the celebrations going on today and a list of closures.

Get the story here.

And don't forget that the post office and banks are closed today.
