The Daily Wire notes,
A city in Illinois has canceled its annual Fourth of July festivities but allowed celebrations for Juneteenth and LGBT pride.
On Saturday, Evanston, an affluent Chicago suburb, commemorated the abolition of slavery for Juneteenth, which just last week President Joe Biden made a national holiday. The celebration included a parade, along with music performances and food at a local park. Evanston also plans a Gay Pride parade next Saturday.
