MLK march winds through downtown Seattle

Organizers expected 10,000 people attended last year's event.

A rally and march wound through downtown Seattle to honor the late civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday's event started with an Opportunity Fair at Garfield High School. Workshops were held in classrooms, and a rally was held in the gym.

From there, a 12:30 march left from the school to Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. That's where the group held another rally at 4th and Pine.

Organizers put together a shared meal back at Garfield High School in the Commons.

This is the 36th annual celebration of MLK Day in Seattle. Last year, 10,000 people were estimated to be in attendance.

Monday's events were free to participate with a collection taken during the morning rally.
