Travis County celebrates Juneteenth

Friday, June 16, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Today, the Travis County Commissioners Court, its staff and the community will celebrate Juneteenth. The ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at the court, after which the commissioners, staff and the community will make their way to the parking garage at Eighth and Lavaca streets to continue the celebration. It’s a tradition at the court, which County Judge Sarah Eckhardt inherited from her predecessor, former Travis County Judge Sam Biscoe. If you can’t make it out to the court today, be sure to check out the 12th Annual Juneteenth Festival on Saturday at the George Washington Carver Museum, Cultural and Genealogy Center. It kicks off at noon.
