The “I Love Chinatown Festival Series” Summer Kick Off event will be the Juneteenth Cultural Celebration Block Party within the heart of Chinatown, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
In collaboration with Hank’s Café Honolulu & The Dragon Upstairs, Rotary Club Of Honolulu Pau Hana Chapter, NAACP, along with participating neighboring local businesses, we would like to invite all to our Juneteenth Summer Kick Off event. The “I Love Chinatown Festival Series” honors the Juneteenth Cultural Celebration as its first block party of the summer. This diverse event starts a well anticipated series of summer block parties to be held by the local businesses of the “ILoveChinatownFestival.com” celebration. The Juneteenth Cultural Celebration commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States and the future of Unity among all Americans.
“On Juneteenth we come together young and old to listen to learn and to refresh the drive to achieve. It is a day where we all take one step closer together- to better utilize the energy wasted on racism. Juneteenth is a day that we pray for peace and liberty for all” As defined on the global website http://www.juneteenth.com
