In hopes of bringing the community together, members from one organization focused on diversity, unity and peace will host their Community BBQ event on Saturday.
Isaiah Eugene helped start the D-UP organization and said it was because of many influences in his life as well as seeing the diversity first-hand in Wichita Falls. D-UP stands for diversity, unity and peace.
Eugene said a lot of planning went into making this barbecue happen.
“I started planning in January, so that will be four months out,” Eugene said. “It’s a long process to plan but to actually get the stuff and make reservations, pay for stuff it doesn’t really take that long. But us actually getting a plan of a community event and getting people out and advertising it that took a little while.”
The Community BBQ will be Saturday from noon-4 p.m. at Bridwell Park.
It is free for anyone to attend. If you’d like to participate in the BBQ cook-off, it is $5.
