From DaVante' Goins | Chief Executive Officer & Founder:
The Juneteenth Parade is a historic event that aims to celebrate freedom, culture, and unity within the Linden Community. As you may know, Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and symbolizes the progress made in the pursuit of equality and justice. It is an occasion to honor the rich heritage and contributions of the African American community while fostering unity among all residents.
The parade will kick off promptly at 10 AM, commencing at Hudson Avenue. It will proceed southbound down Cleveland Avenue, culminating at 11th Avenue at the Four-Corners/Point of Pride. The procession promises to be a joyous and uplifting event, featuring captivating floats, marching bands, community organizations, and individuals coming together to commemorate Juneteenth.
By participating in the inaugural Juneteenth Parade, you will have the opportunity to showcase its commitment to community engagement and support for diversity and inclusion. This event provides a platform to connect with the residents of the Linden Community, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment within the community.
In addition to the spirited parade, attendees can look forward to a variety of exciting activities throughout the morning. There will be fun-filled entertainment, delectable food vendors offering diverse culinary delights, and live performances showcasing local talent. It will be a day of celebration, unity, and community engagement for families, friends, and neighbors.
