Garland Celebrates Juneteenth

On June 19 at Audubon Park, Garland put its own stamp on the celebration of Juneteenth. The Juneteenth Committee’s vision came to life as dancers, speakers and vendors assembled at the park. Many children played games; a select few were honored as winners of the Juneteenth essay contest. At the request of one committee member, the Buster Brown Band reunited on site, coming from as far away as Colorado to play together for the first time since 2015.
