As Black History Month draws to a close, Atlanta took to the streets of the Sweet Auburn Historic District to commemorate the month.

The event started in 2012, according to its website, and features marching bands, civic organizations, cultural arts displays and more. This year, it paid homage to its founder, Earl Little, who died in 2015.

Check out the photos from the event, which took place Saturday.
