BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHEC) – Buffalo is getting ready to hold its annual Juneteenth celebration in person for the first time since the pandemic, but with a whole new significance.

The festival will be held next weekend and will include the usual activities and entertainment, but organizers will also include a special area devoted to the victims.

This will be a space for Buffalo residents to reflect and heal. This will be the 47th Juneteenth celebration in Buffalo.
