Disney’s Princess Tiana To Make Her Parade Debut as an Honorary Grand Marshal

Adrian Dove, chairman of the Kingdom Day Parade, in Los Angeles, has proudly announced the Kingdom Day Parade board’s selection of this year’s grand marshal, the Honorable Holly J. Mitchell, Los Angeles County Supervisor District 2. In a variety of roles, Supervisor Mitchell has been a long-time champion and fighter for delivering on the mission and message of Dr. Martin Luther King. Some of her immediate and past predecessors of similar grit have included Vice-President Kamala Harris, LA Dodgers General Manager Dave Roberts, Stevie Wonder, and of course our Mayor Karen Bass. 

The Kingdom Day Parade, an annual tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has been a staple in the Los Angeles community for nearly four decades. It continues to be a platform for unity, celebration, and advocacy for justice and equality. Joining the celebration this year is Princess Tiana from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “The Princess and the Frog,” along with beloved Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. 

This iconic event, celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is set to take place in Los Angeles on Jan. 15 and will broadcast live at 11:00 a.m. PST on ABC7/KABC-TV Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell, known for her dedicated service and commitment to community empowerment, will lead the parade as the grand marshal. Supervisor Mitchell’s advocacy for social justice, education, and economic equity aligns seamlessly with the principles championed by Dr. King, making her a fitting choice for this prestigious role.
