“The community came together in a huge way we couldn’t have done it without them so again it’s the big summer fest this year there’s no other big summer fest going on it’s a way of bringing people together instead of waiting til stuff happens and then we all come together,” said Betti O., Juneteenth committee member.

The concert will take place tomorrow at 7 pm in City Park in Manhattan.
