Marches, parades and rodeo mark MLK Day in Colo.

DENVER — Coloradans are marking Martin Luther King Jr. day with marches and parades as well as a rodeo.

Participants in Denver’s annual marade — a combination march and parade — walked down Colfax Avenue to Civic Center Park across from the state Capitol.

About 1,075 people took part in Greeley’s 15th annual march and celebration in honor of King, with gold-medalist gymnast Dominique Dawes serving as the keynote speaker.

The National Western Stock Show will also host its annual Martin Luther King Jr. African-American Heritage Rodeo this evening.
