Juarez to commemorate 7th anniversary of Juan Gabriel’s death this weekend

JUAREZ, Chihuahua (KVIA) -- Many Borderland residents lovingly remember Juan Gabriel as one of the most iconic singers from our area.

Celebrations will kick off with a parade on Saturday, August 26 at 8 p.m. along the Avenida 16 de Septiembre.
