Today's Kingdom Day Parade on Martin Luther King Boulevard, Crenshaw and Vernon by photojournalist Jonathan Alcorn — more at his photo blog. Below, LAPD Chief Bratton and Sheriff Lee Baca.
* Also: LA Eastside blogger Browne Molyneux attended her first parade and was more impressed than she expected to be: "This is a huge event. It is a nice event. I donít even like the word ghetto, but whatever that word means or implies this event was not that."
