Martin Luther King Jr. Day is Monday, January 19. This federal holiday helps citizens remember and reflect on the importance of King’s contribution to non-violent activism and the civil rights movement. It’s also a day the kids are out of school—so Edina Parks and Recreation offers a few activities to keep them entertained.
