Thursday is Juneteenth, which celebrates the date - June 19, 1865 - when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston to announce the end of the Civil War and enforce the end of slavery in Texas more than two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. The Old Landmark Committee will host a Multicultural Taste of Soul at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Riverside Park Special Events Area. The event is free. For more information, call Verlinn S. Avery at 361-573-4187.
