Juneteenth celebration in downtown Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The BG Freedom Walkers held the 2nd annual Juneteenth Freedom Celebration in downtown Bowling Green at the SoKY Marketplace on Saturday.

The event took place from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 636 Center Street and featured dozens of retail vendors, food vendors, bouncy houses, free refreshments, speakers and more.

Over 100 people from the community showed up to celebrate the day. Karika Nelson, organizer of BG Freedom Walkers, said this day was even more special as President Biden signed a bill into law on Thursday marking Juneteenth a federal holiday.
