It's almost time to celebrate!

On Sunday, June 15th, the South Bend Chapter of the Indiana Black Expo will host the 15th annual Juneteenth "149th Year" Celebration at LaSalle Park (3419 W. Washington Street, South Bend).

The one-day celebration will run from 9am to 7pm.

Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery in the United States.  The holiday was first celebrated on June 19, 1865 when the final slaves were made aware of their freedom.

This year's celebration will include such highlights as: Major Taylor bike ride, church'n in the park, SOBY report forum, youth oratorio, youth basketball skills and drills, soul food, dancing, music, and amusement rides.

Food vendors as well as merchandise vendors will also be available throughout the day.  Various health information booths will be available as part of the health awareness initiative.
