The weather  was cloudy and cool, and may have discouraged some from  going to the Moreno Valley Black History Parade, 3-1-08, but others came early  to set out seats or blankets along the parade route.

Parade participants included parade Grand Marshall, Dell Roberts; Michelle Park, Member, State Board of Equalization; the Mayor Pro Tem of Moreno Valley; and Judge Fields.  Always a family event, the Black History Parade features local church, school, youth and other community groups often involving parents with their children and their friends. Some will be participating in the parade, but others may be pushing a stroller or carrying a child while walking along the sidelines accompanying their group.

This year's M V event began at Moreno Valley High School and continued at the Moreno Valley mall with an afternoon of programs, awarding of prizes, and time to visit food and other vendors and community service organizations, and - of course - time to visit with each other.
