      KLEK’s first ever Juneteenth in Jonesboro parade has over 30 participants this year from people all around the community.

      The parade is expected to start and end at the historic E. Boone Watson Community Center/Craighead County-Jonesboro African-American Cultural Center on Saturday, June 18. Participants will line up at the center starting at 9:30 A.M. The parade will kick off at 11 A.M.

      The parade will go through historic Downtown Jonesboro and go by the Rotary Club park, which is where the Arvest Bank Grand Stand will be.

      We hope to see you there!
