Thousands packed Shreveport`s Festival Plaza this weekend, for the 20th annual "Let The Good Times Roll" festival. And the wet weather didn`t put a damper on the celebration. "Off and on each year we get some rain but it`s always the 3rd weekend of June.... For one it`s Father`s Day weekend.. It also happened to be the Juneteenth weekend. So we kind of tie both of them in together." said festival Coordinator Lyndon Johnson. The Juneteenth Holiday honors June 19th 1865, the day slaves in Texas learned they were free. Now the holiday is celebrated every year, throughout the south. "I`m not originally from the south so this was a concept that was kind of new to me. And I think it`s a good one. We need to understand our history." said Heggler. Festivalgoers were treated to music, food, fun and a taste of history. Organizers estimate about 30,000 people attended this year`s festival.
