Martin Luther King Jr. Day Events 

Over the long weekend, the Mayor attended the Living the Dream Celebration where 8 members of the community were recognized for their contributions and fulfilling the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mayor Robinson also participate in the MLK prayer breakfast with Chief Tommi Lyter and Councilwoman Jewel Cannada-Wynn. Pictured is the Mayor and our own Assistant City Administrator Kerrith Fiddler's mother-in-law.

We can't forget about our city's Martin Luther King Jr. celebration parade! Thank you to the hundreds of Pensacola city employees who made it happen like Parks and Rec for setting up, sanitation for cleaning up, PPD for keeping everyone safe and PFD for working with EMS to ensure we could care for everyone. That day the Mayor also got to spend time with 
Tia Robins and members of Jack and Jill of Pensacola, who provided boxes of food for area food pantries through program with kids.
