Tucker, GA — Adult Field Day returned to Tucker on Saturday, May 8 after being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. The first field day was held in 2019.

Recreation Leader Jen Young said proceeds from ticket sales went to support the Tucker Parks & Recreation 2021 summer camp scholarship fund and enough money was raised from the evening to send 20 children to summer camp.

Scheduled activities included a cornhole tournament, tug of war, balloon relay and water balloon toss.

“(Participants) are out here competing in events, enjoying our inflatables, having a meal on us and drinks provided by Tucker Brewing Company,” said Young. The event took place at the Tucker Recreation Center field.
