Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and celebrations are taking place all across the region.

In Burlington the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center will be offering a discounted admission of just two dollars all day long. In addition to their on-going exhibit called Race, which explores the science and experiences of race and diversity in America, there will be special MLK-day programming, including discussions on culture and diversity, story time for children and musical performances.

"Our community is becoming more and more diverse and we need to embrace that, recognize that and celebrate that and this is the purpose for the MLK day," said ECHO's Linda Bowden.
