JAMESTOWN – The annual Juneteenth celebration is returning to the Jamestown area one again this year.
The historic day is meant to commemorate the emancipation of African-American slaves.
From a walk to city hall, to a community wide celebration at Jackson-Taylor Park, Juneteenth in Jamestown is becoming a tradition that celebrates black culture and freedoms.
This year along with the celebrations, to help kick off the Juneteenth Festival, officials are offering the community a free movie night showing Sister Act 2.
The movie night will host a slew of vendors from all sorts of different organizations. As well as 21 plus wristbands for those of legal age to purchase alcohol.
The event will be on Friday June 17th from 5 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. in front of the National Comedy Center.
