Lexington's downtown filled with hundreds of marchers Monday morning.

People gathered to celebrate both President Barack Obama's inauguration and the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A parade began at 10 a.m., leading to the Lexington Center where a celebration was held with guest speakers and musicians.

"The inauguration, the election...it all shows that--working together--we can get a lot of great things accomplished. That's why it's significant," said Lexington Fire Department Chief Keith Jackson.

"Myself--being an example of the dream--and being able to be the chief of the Lexington fire department is because of the steps that he [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.] took over 50 years ago."
