Pastor Elijah Collins of New Jerusalem Baptist Church and Mayor Kelly Kautz have announced plans for Snellville's second annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.

The theme of the event is "unity in the community."

"We need unity at this point in time in Snellville more than ever," said Kautz.

Snellville was the last city in Gwinnett to adopt the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Despite the adoption of the celebration in 2007, 2012 saw the first official celebration. 

The group will leave at 11 a.m. on Jan. 21 at New Jerusalem; the city is invited to line up at 10:45. The parade will stretch from the church, located at 1958 Dogwood Road, to City Hall. (You can park at either City Hall or Texas Roadhouse and a shuttle will take you to where you need to go.)

Special performances will take place at City Hall by Time2Inspire, Triple 7 Dance Company and South Gwinnett High School Performing Arts.

Following the parade, the president's inaugural address will be aired at New Jerusalem Baptist Church.

The church can be reached at 770-972-2324. You can also visit their Facebook page or website.
