Nearly six decades after Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led thousands of demonstrators through the streets during the Civil Rights movement, his memory was honored Saturday by the people of Paso Robles.

This is the 13th annual March for Unity honoring MLK's life.

The walk was meant to build unity among people of all ages, races and walks of life with a message that just one person can make a difference.

This year's theme was "the Power of One".

A trio of church choirs from First Baptist, Second Baptist, and North County Christian sang at the event.

They also had an art and essay contest highlighting the life and work of MLK which gave students the chance to compete for a modest cash prize.

Local students performed a dance to top off the event.
