In August, rain forced Operation Unite to cancel its annual Black Arts and Cultural Festival and reschedule it. The new date is tomorrow, Saturday, September 22, and there is only the tiniest chance of rain in the forecast.
The parade down Warren Street, from the Public Square to Riverfront Park, begins at 2 p.m. The festival at the waterfront, with the theme "Pride and Family," runs from 3 to 7 p.m. and features Kuumba Dance and Drum, Samba Rhymystics Band, Olympia Ward Drum Circle, a community talent show, raffles, youth games, food vendors, and more. The event is hosted by Operation Unite Education and Cultural Arts Center.
