Ware County residents celebrated the legacy and ideals of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. with five days of events in Waycross beginning on Thursday.  The 23rd annual celebration focused on the theme "The Dream Alive - Season of Change"  signifying the past, present and future hope of King's dream. 

The Waycross commemoration historically has been one of the largest in Georgia.  More than three dozen community groups and churches participated in the parade, along with the Ware County High School band and the Albany State University marching band.
