Mark your calendar now for May 9, 2009 for ‘Tucker Day’ as hosted by the Main Street Tucker Alliance. This years’ festivities include the annual Tucker Parade, pancake breakfast and 5k run in addition to the Main Street Market which features live music, arts and crafts vendors, food and activities for children. The Tucker Day celebration will be followed by a cruise-in on Main Street featuring both antique and special interest cars and motorcycles.
Plan to get to Main Street early in order to watch the parade, enjoy freshly made pancakes and purchase a souvenir t-shirt. The 2008 Tucker Day shirts were a hot commodity and unfortunately sold our long before the days activities came to an end. Bands will play throughout the day and the festival usually runs early morning until around 4pm at which point the street market is replaced with the cars for the cruise-in.
Attendance at the Annual Tucker Day festivities is a wonderful way to show your support for local area businesses and the revitalization of Tuckerâ€™s Downtown Core Area. In addition, the proceeds of the pancake breakfast support the 2008 Georgia State Champion Tucker High School Football team and Quarterback Club while the 5K run benefits the Tucker High School Marching Band and Booster Club.
