I had an amazing time at the Juneteenth Parade. What I loved about the experience was that the parade route took us right through neighborhoods, not just along main thoroughfares. We went right past people sitting on their porches and waiting at bus stops. We filed past children playing in corner parks and going to the store with their moms. There were guys hanging out at barber shops and others who came out of buildings and homes just to see what was going on in their neighborhood.
The parade itself had all of the normal bands and high-stepping young ladies doing their amazing routines. There were also African American associations - ones that you don't normally see: a motorcycle club, a classic car club, a horse riding association, and of course Sisterlocks! It. Was. A. Blast!!! I'm looking forward to next year. #ACADEMYWEEKEND #JUNETEENTH Check out our training schedule
