1st Annual Juneteenth Parade

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Parade Starts at 12pm

Sign up now and help to create the cultural parade that acknowledges African American people past, present and future. Our goal for 2016 is to establish ourselves with an inspirational parade by including as many community groups and families as possible to historically, artistically, spiritually and economically demonstrate our magnificent African/African American history. We are putting the call out now for 2016 participants by community organizations, churches, public school bands, marching bands, drum groups, dance groups, martial arts schools, running clubs, walking clubs, youth groups, senior groups, sororities, fraternities and more. We exclude almost no one who wants to participate in creating this inspirational commemoration of African American history. Contact us for more information or fill out our parade registration form.

All Community Organizations are Invited to Participate

Matching uniforms are recommmended. No floats/vehicles this year.
