Juneteenth Flag Raising
June 10 @ 10:00 am
The African American Cultural Society will host Port Arthur 2022 Juneteenth events. Join the community in raising a flag. The event will be at 10 a.m. on June 10, before Juneteenth. Gather at the Jefferson County Sub-Courthouse, 525 Lakeshore Drive.
Jazz in the Park, food vendors and family fun will follow.
Because this is near our beautiful seawall, look out to the waters to check for seagoing vessels. For info, call (409) 983-8300;
Want to learn more? After you attend the flag raising, next head to the Port Arthur Public Library. They will present a Juneteenth display throughout the month. Certainly, this will include stories of music, cultural foods and pride. Carolyn M. Thibodeaux, children’s librarian, is a coordinator for the African American Culture Society.
