This Saturday, June 18th, Mayor Sylvester Turner will host the 5th Annual Acres Homes Juneteenth Parade beginning at 10 a.m. The parade will start at the Acres Homes Multi-Service Center, 6719 W. Montgomery, head north on W. Montgomery, turn left on Dolly Wright and end at Greater Zion Missionary Baptist Church, 1620 Dolly Wright. West Montgomery will be closed along the route during the duration of the parade.
“I expect everyone in Acres Homes to be there,” said Mayor Turner.
The parade will feature marching bands, dancers, schools, non-profit organizations, cars and motorcycles, floats, horses and more.
“Dozens of people are participating in the Juneteenth Parade,” said Mayor Turner. “Come out to hear the music, watch the drill teams and enjoy the many vehicles, both horse-powered and horse-drawn. Come out and support our school kids and community groups and wave to your family and friends as they march by.”
