PHOTOS: Joyful sights and sounds abound at Oakland’s Black Joy Parade
on February 26, 2023
Bands, dancers, clowns, cowboys and cool cars filled downtown Oakland Sunday afternoon for the Black Joy Parade. Wet streets and chilly weather didn’t discourage hundreds of people from enjoying music, food and a host of activities for children and adults. In its sixth year, the parade celebrates the Black experience and culture. It also promotes Oakland’s many Black-owned small businesses.

Once I was at the parade, there was a crowd, but in the photo everything looks very joyful. This is what it means to choose the right photo for an article. As a content creator, I know what I’m talking about. Stock photos are a great source of content for every occasion. I even found buddha images there. Absolutely for any request, you can find a photo there, thanks to which the article will acquire a new color.
