Celebrate! A View of Juneteenth Traditions and Customs opens on Saturday, June 11 at the Brenham Heritage Museum?s Bus Depot Gallery.

Specific topics include parades, coronations, rodeos, concerts and entertainment, picnics, sporting events, and reunions. Visitors can learn a great deal about the history of this holiday through artifacts, images and historic newspaper articles.
