Emancipation Day celebrations included the annual Emancipation Day parade. The parade made its way down Ouellette Avenue from Riverside Drive to Jackson Park on Sunday at 1 p.m. Throngs of spectators lined the parade route to catch a glimpse of the floats, marching bands, precision drill teams and dignitaries. Floats featuring the beautiful Miss Sepia contestants were always very popular.
