JUNETEENTH, June 19

Greetings Blackshear Community!

I want to invite you to celebrate Juneteenth with your Blackshear community and AISD. There are at least two ways to participate, march or support the marchers by cheering them on (and view the whole parade.

1) Students and staff are invited to march in the parade behind the AISD Juneteenth banner and the AISD All-Star Band.

AISD participants will meet at the the I-35 parade entrance at the intersection of MLK and Comal no later than 9 AM. The parade route is approximately 1.2 miles. The parade will begin and end at approximately 11:30 AM. Please see the map of the route.

OR

2) Join Blackshear staff and students to watch the parade as it goes by Rosewood Ave. and Chicon St..

The parade starts at 10 AM and will pass by Rosewood Ave and Chicon St. You may park in the Blackshear parking lot on Gregory St.

Please wear Blackshear shirts. We will bring our PTA banner/sign to proudly display for all of the parade participants to see.

Central Texas Juneteenth (sponsors of the parade) have shared the following guidelines and restrictions:

  • Social Distancing
  • Face Coverings at all times
  • No more than groups of 10

We hope to see you on June 19 supporting the Juneteenth parade!
