Despite the heat the Riverside community came out, early, and stayed late for the 10th Annual Riverside Juneteenth Festival. Sponsored by a broad spectrum of business and civic organizations, print & electronic media, food vendors, and officials.

The Juneteenth Committee committed itself to providing both a 'fun' event and an educational experience related to the history of Blacks in America. Sheltered inside the Stratton Center, they presented an extensive ' museum' collection of books, posters, and other articles.

This free family oriented festival featured entertainment, mini museum, health information, historical presentations along with food and merchant vendors. GEMS of the community awards were given to persons and organizations who are committed to promoting family values and encouraging young people towards positive goals.
