Martin Luther King Jr. Day Holiday is Jan. 19

Updated January 15, 2009

The Colorado State University, Fort Collins, and Loveland communities will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with several events on Jan. 19, 2009. The theme of this year's celebration is "A Time for Change."

March from Old Town to CSU

This year, a significant change has been made to the beginning of the Martin Luther King Day celebration in Fort Collins.

The route for the traditional one–mile community march will change this year, beginning at 11 a.m. in Old Town Square, Fort Collins.

The march will continue down College Avenue to Laurel Street and through the center of the Oval on CSU’s campus. The march will then continue west on Isotope Drive and end at the CSU Lory Student Center.
