Muskogee celebrates Juneteenth at noon today at Elliott Park, 800 Altamont Street.

Juneteenth, a celebration of the notification of emancipation to Texas slaves, has come to represent in a broader sense the end of slavery itself.

Today’s celebration features free food provided by local restaurants Holy Smoke Barbecue, Golden Corral, Rib Crib, Charlie’s Chicken, Walmart and Runt’s Barbecue.

In addition, two semi loads of food boxes from Go Fresh food produce distributors will be available to attendees.

Nothing at the celebration will cost money, symbolizing the freedom of emancipation.
