About 600 people marched through the streets of Oxnard in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday.
Participants including Martha Foster said she thought the election outcome increased the usual turnout.
The marchers included parents and children, members of the Navy, Oxnard’s Police Chief, Ventura County’s Sheriff and council members from Oxnard, Port Hueneme and Ventura.
Some people hummed “We shall overcome,” along the way.
One family came all the way from Santa Clarita to take part in Oxnard’s march. They said they come to this tribute every year.
The march started at Plaza Park at 8 a.m. and ended at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center where Oxnard High School student musicians performed and where a commemorative program took place.
Taking part in the march was free, but the program cost $7 at the door.
