In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day - there are events all across the Baton Rouge Area.
Folks at the Marting Luther King Jr. Community Center took part in the King Day of Service.
The event focuses on taking the day off of work and school - and using it to improve the community.
Over 300 volunteers bult benches, painted murals, even revitalized empty parking lots.
Meanwhile in Denham Springs, dozens of people marched to remember King.
The group marched from a local park to a church for a service.
That event has become an annual tradition.
