Juneteenth, Kansas City, Kan. Pt. 1

Juneteenth 6-13-09

From the better-late-than-never department…

June 13, 2009. A Saturday threatened by rain, but full of barbecue, black history remembrance and a brass-band parade. The celebration took place near the historic Quindaro neighborhood. Traffic ogled eastward from State Avenue as the parade marched parallel down Washington Boulevard at 10th Street.

From the start, I was impressed by sights and smells. Barbecue contestants were flaunting their wares through the air. By 10 a.m., I was ravenous. But first, check out how the sign was constructed:

A creative, economical way to announce the Juneteenth fest.
