Every year, the Autauga County Improvement Association coordinates the observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a parade.

The parade begins at Stanley-Jensen Stadium at 9 a.m. on Monday, January 18th. Once parade participants leave the stadium, they will move down Doster Road to Northington Street to Main Street to Chestnut Street, which turns into Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, to First Missionary Baptist Church on Seventh Street where the celebration culminates in a church service in King’s honor.

“This is an event that I always enjoy,” stated Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. “This parade is filled with song, praise, hope and always has a great turnout. I hope that everyone will come out and join us in celebrating Dr. King.”

The City of Prattville offices will be closed on January 18th in observance of the holiday. Sanitation will not collect Residential Yard Trash or Household Garbage on that day.

Monday & Tuesday Household Garbage routes will be collected as on Tuesday, January 19th. Wednesday through Friday Household Garbage routes will be run as normally scheduled.

Monday & Tuesday's Residential Yard Trash will be collected on Tuesday, January 19th. On Wednesday, January 20th, Sanitation will collect any remaining Tuesday routes and Wednesday Residential Yard Trash routes. Thursday and Friday Residential Yard Trash routes will be run as normally scheduled.
