MARK YOUR CALENDARS – WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 2018
Looking for good family fun? Join the City of Duncanville and Parks and Recreation for a day of music, fun, festivities, and fireworks.
Looking forward to a great event with you in mind.
“Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. Celebrated on June 19, the word is a portmanteau of “June” and “nineteenth”. Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in most states.“
The holiday is observed primarily in local celebrations given by our Best Southwest Cities who each host the Juneteenth Celebration.
Plan to attend this Saturday, September 12, 2015, “Festival en Duncanville” 4–8 PM, featuring Rey Reyna Aftershock and Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico. Delicious food, great music and lots of fun!
