Juneteenth online schedule announced

The 45th consecutive festival events include a virtual parade, arts and culture, sports and recreation.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Organizers of this year's Juneteenth Festival want you to know it's on, but just online.

Like so many summer events this year, the annual celebration of African heritage, history & culture held every June at MLK Park in Buffalo has fallen victim to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Volunteers have put in countless hours to bring the events to life online instead of in person. It all started Thursday and continues this weekend.

Families are encouraged to make their favorite dish and gather around all of their devices to sample everything this year's festival has to offer.
