Started in 2018, the #BlackJoyParade was started as a way for all members of the African Diaspora to celebrate their unique culture.
Just as in 2018, the 2019 event was well attended with numerous community groups taking part in the parade and festival afterwards.
To top things off, festival goers were treated to a free musical show by T-Pain, who didn't disappoint as he rocked the crowd until the early hours of the evening.
It was fun family event, and we are awaiting word if there will be a 3rd event planned for 2020.
Be sure to check out our video of the event on our You Tube page.
