CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Organizers of a Peace Walk and Day of Service planned for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day hope the event will rally the community. 

Despite the cold weather, Cincinnati residents plan to honor the legacy of  King Jr. with numerous event across the Tri-State that celebrate Dr. King's legacy.

At 8 a.m., the Martin Luther King Coalition will begin the holiday with a sold-out King Legacy Awards Breakfast. 
  
At 10 a.m., Cincinnati's MLK March runs from the Freedom Center to Fountain Square for an interfaith prayer service. Marchers will then head to Music Hall for the MLK Commemorative Celebration at noon. 
  
Organizers say the brutally cold temperatures will not get in the way of the mission started 41 years ago. 
  
The Freedom Center will also offer free admission Monday. 
  
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday is a perfect opportunity for Americans to honor Dr. King’s legacy through service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community.
