RTC started developing new transportation-related solutions to help meet the needs of our growing community and launched On Board as a comprehensive mobility plan for Southern Nevada. With substantial community and stakeholder input, the visionary plan will identify how enhancements to the current bus system, new high capacity transit services and emerging transportation technologies can improve future mobility and accessibility for our residents and visitors. So, the RTC now needs the community to tell us which strategies and services are most important.

More than 30,000 spectators are expected to attend the 40th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade in downtown Las Vegas.

The parade theme is “Living the Dream — The Time is Right to Do What’s Right.”

Founder's Quotes

“The parade is part of local King Week events, which include the Martin Luther King Jr. Technology Summit, two church services, the Young Dreamers Awards Program and the MLK Scholarship Awards Banquet.”

“The event typically draws 30,000 or more spectators. I think this one [MLK Parade 2020] will be the largest spectator crowd we’ve ever had, based on the phone calls I’m getting.”

“Just 13 entries took part in the first parade in January 1982. The first parade was so pitiful that I had some friends say, ‘We need to help you.’ The parade has come a long way in nearly 40 years.”

– Wendell P. Williams, Founder
