Monday's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial March starts in Perry Square in downtown Erie.

City crews were out Sunday plowing the sidewalks around and through Perry Square to make sure it is ready for the hundreds of people who will gather for the annual march.

The crowd typically forms about 11:30 a.m. on the holiday for Dr. King. After brief remarks, the march begins around 11:45 a.m. and steps off at noon.

It ends at the Martin Luther King Center with a wreath laying ceremony, a soup and sandwich lunch, and special tributes in song, dance and speeches.

The focus this year is on achieving economic equality.
