Tens of thousands march in Denver to honor MLK

Tens of thousands of people walked through Denver on Monday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. in one of the biggest turnouts in years for the city's annual march and parade.

They gathered in City Park for speeches by lawmakers including Gov. John Hickenlooper and Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner, as well as prayers and singing before making the 3-mile walk down Colfax Avenue past the state Capitol in the 30th annual event.
