Jensen Jubilee Parade & Festival

Congreeman Green

The Jensen Drive corridor and New Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church were the scene of a joyful 3rd Annual Festival last Saturday. Hundreds turned out to celebrate the spirit of rejuvenation that Pastor David Smith has brought to this community.

With a parade that started at 9 a.m. and the Festival at the church grounds that followed, everyone found lots to do, eat, and enjoy.

The Festival was officially sponsored by the Houston Northeast Community Development Corporation, working to improve lifestyles and physical conditions along Jensen Drive.

Attending the event were many local officials, including Congressman Gene Green, State Representative Armando Walle, State Senator Sylvia Garcia, and representatives of the Mayor’s office.

In addition a number of organizations had information booths, and a health fair was also part of the activities.

For the first time, a Mr. & Ms. Jensen Jubilee were named, and honored with a certificate from Congressman Green. The King was Uriel Iglesias, and the Queen was Jennifer Moreno. They each received a $250 scholarship award.
