Final preparations are being made ahead of the Dallas Mega March on Sunday in downtown Dallas.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to march for immigration reform and racial equality.
The march begins at 2 p.m at the Cathedral Guadalupe and ends at Dallas City Hall.
Organizers of the march say it’s difficult to know if we will see a repeat of the previous Mega March in 2006, when more than 100,000 people attended.
Sunday’s mile-long march will start at the Guadalupe Cathedral and end at the Dallas City Hall Plaza.
Martin Luther King the Third will be among the speakers on hand.
Participants are urged to wear Red, White and Blue and to only bring American flags.

The City Hall Plaza will be closed Saturday afternoon so organizers can start setting up the stage.
“We’ve been, for almost two months, planning with the Dallas police department to make sure that our security concerns are addressed. We want to make sure we have a peaceful, non-violent march that’s positive,” said organizer Domingo Garcia.
Garcia says there will be approximately 1,000 officers from Dallas police and sheriff’s Office on hand.
DART will double the number of buses running on Sunday afternoon, according to organizers.
Garcia also says they have spoken with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and they have been assured ICE will not be at or near the march on Sunday.
