Party in the Park is the Muskegon tradition that gathers us, one and all, to make the best use of Hackley Park all summer on Friday nights.  We can commune to talk about what's going on in town, enjoy some cold refreshing drinks, tasty food from local vendors of all flavors, check out great bands and learn about the organizations that the Party in the Park is really all about.  It is a giant summer long fundraiser you know?  Amazing how we sneak in a way to strengthen and support great causes with a good time isn't it?



Darius Mitchell is with the Muskegon Young Black Professionals. They are an organization endeavoring to be the primary resource for professional and social development for young black professionals in the Muskegon County area.  They are dedicated to improving the community through personal development and connection-building. With collaboration and education, all things are possible!  Success begets success and to be able to pass along the wisdom of what it takes to take step after step in the right direction are fundamental building blocks to be shared across all platforms.  Helping build connections, finding areas that mutually beneficial and support one another in the day to day challenges of growth and success are what they are all about.

With the Party in the Park benefitting the Muskegon Young Black Professionals on June 16th, it's a wonderful way to lead into the entire Juneteenth Weekend that unfolds.  Juneteenth is celebrated in recognition of the fact that it took 2 years after the Emaciation Proclamation to get the news to Texas that slavery was over.  Can you imagine?  It was first recognized as a federal holiday in 2022.  It will be a weekend filled with observances all over town and Friday night you'll enjoy the music of Aintee Kim and U'Neek Soul along with a chance to get to know more about the Muskegon Young Black Professionals.  Pretty great way to kick off a weekend of celebration.
