Melton Sales and BOK take honors at MLK Parade

mlk paradeI learned this week that Tulsa’s MLK parade is touted as the second-largest in the country. Say the what? I had no idea!

With the beautiful weather this past Monday, this year was no exception, as approximately 10,000 spectators turned out for the annual parade in Tulsa’s historic Greenwood District. The parade is big, with nearly 200 entries, including several from Kansas and Missouri.

Parade chairman Fred Jones said, “We like to look good in Tulsa. And I guess we do because we’re getting attention from all over the place.”

Sports mascots appeared throughout the event, including the Sooner Schooner (and the Sugar Bowl trophy), Pistol Pete, and the Tulsa Drillers’ Hornsby, as well as the mascots from the University of Tulsa and the Tulsa Shock.

Martin Luther King ParadeYou are probably thinking, “This is all well and good, but what does this have to do with Claremore?” Well, local dealership Melton Sales participated for the third year in a row in the MLK parade. Melton partnered with Bank of Oklahoma, who received first place honors for their float, which was pulled by a Melton Sales Dodge Ram. Since thepartnership began, BOK has received either first or second place each year! It’s because of the awesome truck, you know!

The Melton Sales team would like to thank the group from BOK for making this such a fun and meaningful experience. Here’s to another first place win next year!
