HOUSTON (AP) - Parades, music and community programs have been scheduled across Texas to mark the federal holiday honoring the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Texans joined other Americans on Monday to honor King’s memory 44 years after the civil rights leader was assassinated.

Houston scheduled a parade and an MLK day of service.

Organizers say tens of thousands of participants are expected for an MLK march in San Antonio. It’s the 25th anniversary of San Antonio’s celebration of King’s life and legacy.

An MLK festival Monday at Fair Park in Dallas features a health fair, a gospel concert and poetry readings.

Some Texas communities held weekend MLK events. San Angelo’s celebration included a Gospel Fest at a church.
