Wednesday January 15, 2020

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) encourages the public to Go Metro as a convenient and quick way to travel to the 35th annual Kingdom Day Parade on Monday, January 20, to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Two Expo Line stations — Expo/Western and Expo/Crenshaw — are a short walk from the parade route that runs along Martin Luther King Jr. and Crenshaw boulevards. The Expo Line runs between downtown Los Angeles — where it connects to the A Line (Blue) and Red/Purple Line — and downtown Santa Monica.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Arlington Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and then travel west to Crenshaw Boulevard, where the route turns south to Vernon Avenue and the heart of Leimert Park Village.

To reach the parade on Metro:

  • For viewing near the start of the parade route, attendees should take the Expo Line to the Expo/Western Station and walk south to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and then turn right and walk to Arlington Avenue.
  • For viewing along Crenshaw Boulevard, attendees should take the Expo Line to the Expo/Crenshaw Station and walk south to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard or transfer to the Metro Bus Line 210, exit at 39th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard and then walk one block south.

All Metro bus and rail lines will be running on a regular weekend schedule.
