Following a 2020 cancellation due to COVID-19, this year’s Juneteenth celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation will be staged on the grounds of the historic Richard Allen School.
The daylong event will begin at 11 a.m. It will feature entertainment, historical information, food, vendors, games and door prizes.
In addition to music, entertainment will include cultural dancing by the Nanticoke Indians, the Ken Huff and Mr. Goodwood ventriloquist act and poetry referencing the event’s history.
This will be an outdoor event without the indoor tours of the school.
