PHOTOS: El Cerrito's 25th Annual MLK Day Celebration

Clear skies and unseasonably warm temperatures drew large crowds from around the East Bay to watch and participate in El Cerrito's 25th Annual MLK Day Celebration.

The parade started around 9:30 a.m. with police cars and the El Cerrito High School leading the way down Moeser Lane and Ashbury Ave. Families and over a dozen organizations (full list below) walked to El Cerrito High School's Performing Arts Center for a rally dedicated to Nelson Mandela.
