PHILADELPHIA JUNETEENTH FREEDOM FLOAT HOUSES!  

Juneteenth Philly is hosting its first Juneteenth Freedom Day Float House Contest &  Celebration! In the spirit of the Philadelphia Juneteenth Parade & Festival, Freedom Float  Houses offer a safe way for our city to celebrate Juneteenth by residents and nonprofit  organizations decorating their homes, blocks, businesses and buildings. This carries on the  Juneteenth legacy of supporting our families, friends, neighbors, and black owned businesses. 

This year the competition is limited to those residents who have houses or businesses  located in the West Philadelphia area of the city. Next year the competition will open up to the  entire city. Decorate your home, business, organization or block in a theme that promotes Black  solidarity, pride and accomplishments. (*suggested themes listed below). The top Philadelphia  Juneteenth Freedom Float Houses in each category will win a cash prize of $1000 and be seen on  6abc!
