I was just reading that this celebration begins on June 8-19. I will be on vacay the 9th thru 14th and did not know this was going on. Does anyone know if it will be busy the entire time or just on the weekends?

Never been to this, but would think weekends would be worse.

From what I've heard, the entire island gets inundated with people celebrating the holiday, PARTICULARLY on the weekends. It's a good place to avoid unless you like huge crowds (somewhat like Mardi Gras in NOLa).

I have not seen any difference in crowds during Juneteenth from any other summer weekend. That being said, crowds are larger than I've ever seen them in the nine years I've been here - but it's because Galveston just keeps getting better. The Pleasure Pier is bringing in huge numbers, as well as other new attractions, tours, etc.

If your vacation is the 9th through the 14th, you'll be here during the week, and it won't be so crazy. Enjoy the Island :)
