It’s going to be another fun and busy weekend in Richmond.

We’ve already reported that the annual 2022 Richmond Juneteenth Family Parade & Festival is set for this Saturday in Richmond, with the parade starting at 10 a.m. at Booker T.

We’ve also mentioned that East Brother Beer Company is holding its “Pride & Purpose Beer Festival,” a benefit for Rosie the Riveter Trust, also on Saturday, June 18, from 12-6 p.m.

More recently, we’ve learned that the Richmond Police Activities League’s (RPAL) annual carnival is also coming to Richmond this weekend, occurring Friday, June 17, through Sunday, June 19, according to Dawn Moultrie, RPAL program manager.

The carnival is set to take place at Barrett Ave. and 25th St.
