June 19, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The 3rd Annual Father’s Day Comedy Show and Juneteenth Celebration is at the Lyric Theatre at 4 pm on Sunday, June 19.
“JUNETEENTH is the name for a holiday celebrating June 19, 1865, the day when Union soldiers arrived in Texas and spread the word that President Lincoln had delivered his Emancipation Procalamation. News traveled so slowly in those days that Texas did not hear of Lincoln’s Proclamation, which he gave on January 1, 1863, until more than two years after it was issued.
