Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced its Florida resorts, Casa Del Mar in Ormond Beach and Daytona SeaBreeze in Daytona Beach look forward to hosting guests who wish to attend the Third Annual Juneteenth Community Celebration in Daytona Beach this summer. The celebration, which commemorates the end of the American slave trade, will take place June 18, 2011.
The Juneteenth Family Festival features music, food, activities and entertainment. The celebration is held at Cypress Park, on the southeast corner of Nova Road and George Engram Boulevard. For the 11th year in a row, admission to this cultural event is free.
Juneteenth is a celebration that commemorates the day Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas and announced the end of the Civil War and the emancipation of the 125,000 slaves living in the state. The date, June 19, 1865, is memorialized across the country and celebrated by festivals, performances and parades.
“We look forward to assisting guests who are searching for entertainment toward the Juneteenth Celebration,” says Harold Channell, General Manager of Bluegreen’s Daytona Beach resort, Daytona SeaBreeze. “While the resort provides a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere, as well as plenty of on-site activities, we always recommend local festivals and events to our guests so they may get a feel for the city.
