FORT VALLEY, Ga. — The Peach County Activity Committee had their first Juneteenth Freedom Festival in downtown Fort Valley Friday.
Many people came out to enjoy the African dances, food, and history lessons.
Some severe thunderstorms did force them to put the festival on pause.
They waited out the rain and let the good times roll with some carriage rides.
President of the Peach County Activity Committee LaTonia Ages was proud to report that the rain didn't stop them and they are planning to make the Juneteenth Freedom Festival an annual event.
