The City of Fishers and Fishers Parks will host a citywide Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration from Friday, January 15 through Monday, January 18. 

Residents can celebrate through socially distant in-person activities and online at The celebration includes:

I Have a Dream Driving Tour

Fishers Parks is distributing 500 fill-in-the-blank style yard signs and markers on a first-come, first-served basis for residents to fill in with their dreams and display in their yard during the celebration. The final pickup opportunity is today from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Fishers Parks office (11565 Brooks School Road). Participants have the option to submit their home to the online driving tour map, so others can travel around the community to see the decorated signs. After the celebration, residents can recycle their signs by dropping off at the Fishers Parks office between noon and 6 p.m. on January 20 and 21. 

MLK Memorial Spotify Playlist 

Check out the MLK Memorial playlist on Spotify, curated by Fishers Parks, to listen to famous speeches, hymns, and period music inspired and related to the life of Dr. King. Listen to it at your convenience or play it to accompany the I Have a Dream Driving Tour. 

2,000 Acts of Kindness Challenge
The 2,000 Acts of Kindness Challenge, launched by Mayor Scott Fadness last month to encourage residents to support one another and local businesses during this difficult time, concludes on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Residents can share their kind act, or nominate someone who has performed a kind act, through an online form. As a thank you for their act, residents will receive a $50 gift card to a locally owned restaurant. Fishers residents have completed over 1,200 Acts of Kindness over the past month as part of this challenge.
