Martin Luther King Jr. Day looked a lot different across the Tri-State compared with last year's events.

Madisonville hosted its 35th annual memorial wreath-laying service for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

But the tradition was altered due to COVID-19, leaving the city with no choice but to stream it live on Facebook.

The ceremony included several keynote speakers.
