Hundreds of Yakima neighbors march on Martin Luther King Day

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima observed Martin Luther King Day with a peace march downtown.

Hundreds made their way down Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. Marchers carried banners, flags and photos of Dr. King. His "I Have A Dream" speech played on a loudspeaker.

The procession ended at the Convention Center. Marchers prayed, sang and honored several local educators. Neighbor Michael Horne said he was marching for future generations.

"We know that we're not going to live forever. But, the legacy of Martin Luther King not only lives through us, but as you look around, you see all the young people? It's important that they understand that what our forefathers, what our predecessors, did for was not in vain."

Another peace march was held in Toppenish.
