Parade Permit Denied for Controversial MLK Day Parade in Arlington

Arlington MLK parade denied permit over funding failure

The City of Arlington denied a permit to the parade organizers because they couldn't cover some of the expenses.

The local MLK Committee is partnering with the city's Parks and Recreation Division to host the event, which will include games, face painting, displays and refreshments. Abbott's attendance also met opposition from the Arlington chapter of the NAACP, which celebrated Thursday's cancellation of the parade.

"We've done a lot of work and pretty much everything is ready for the parade", Barbee said.

He went on: "We're talking about Toyota and these other major corporations - why couldn't they come up with the money?"

Feinstein said that she was trying to set the record straight after speculation about Simpson's interview. The lawyer for Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson made the revelation after Republican Sen.

Barbee said organizers plan to appeal the city's decision, but Yelverton said the group had already missed several deadlines, making the parade impossible to pull off.

If the organizers tried to have the event anyway, they wouldn't have bathrooms or seating, he said.

In Arlington, special event organizers must meet requirements such as providing for insurance, a traffic study, adequate parking and public safety components, Warren said.

Earlier this week, the Arlington NAACP released a statement blasting the appointment of Abbott as honorary marshal.

As controversy continues swirling around the Arlington MLK parade, North Texans wanting to honor the civil rights leader will still have the chance to do so in Fort Worth Monday. Texas has appealed to the Supreme Court.

Alisa Simmons, president of the Arlington NAACP, said she believes city officials about the event's financial obstacles, though she credits her group for getting the parade kicked out of the city.

"I'm so glad the NAACP does not have to protest something with Martin Luther King's name on it on Martin Luther King Day", Simmons said. "We didn't want that, and as I told the city manager, 'You don't want that.' But we will protest".

Abbott's office didn't respond to requests for a comment Friday.
