RCDD celebrates Juneteenth

Posted: Updated:
RICHWOOD, La. (KNOE 8 News) - For the 16th year, the Richwood Community Development Agency hosted its annual Juneteenth celebration.  

Even though Juneteenth - celebrating the end of slavery - isn't for another 2 weeks, this group holds its party the first weekend of June every year.

Margie Davis says several hundred people attend each year and some groups plan reunions around the weekend.

"Juneteenth is a wonderful time for us to celebrate; the blessings of America, the blessing of God and remember from which God has brought us. So we are happy to do this every year," Davis said.

This year's event featured several entertainers, booths, food and even a car show.
