The city of Ocoee came together to remember those lost in the 102nd anniversary of the 1920 Ocoee Election Day Massacre with a weekend of events including the signature Unity Family Festival on Saturday, Nov. 5.
The signature Ocoee Remembers 2022 dedicated three days to bring the community together through remembering, educating, healing, uniting and honoring the lives lost in the massacre.
The day started with the Orlando and Tampa chapters of the Buffalo Soldiers hosting the second annual Julius "July" Perry Memorial Highway Honor Ride.
The festival then began at noon with family and friends flocking to the Ocoee Lakeshore Center to enjoy live music, inspirational speakers, food trucks, a kids zone, small businesses, community vendors and much more.
