BLM event

CASA GRANDE — Black Lives Matter Pinal County plans a COVID-safe car parade on Monday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Those wishing to participate will assemble at The Promenade at Casa Grande shopping center in the parking lot near PetSmart at 5:30 p.m. The group will drive single file down Florence Boulevard, ending at Casa Grande City Hall, where a candlelight vigil will be held in the parking lot.

Participants may decorate their vehicles and display signs.

“We will also be honoring our loved ones that have died due to racism and police violence,” a notice about the event said.

Those taking part are asked to wear a facial mask.

“This is strictly a safe, family friendly event,” the announcement said.

Candles will be made available at the vigil.
