Tucker, GA — The Tucker Cruise-In returned to Main Street on Saturday, May 8 for the first time since October 2019.

“I think we got a (good) turn out because I believe everybody here has just got cabin fever,” said Wayne Hicks from the Tucker Cruisers.

Organizer Gene Cofer said 120 vehicles had registered for the day. A change to an earlier time to avoid conflict with evening restaurant traffic didn’t deter the crowds who came out to enjoy the pleasant weather and wide array of vehicles.

In addition, Palliative Pharmacy Solutions (Carr’s Drugs) and NETWorks Cooperative Ministry partnered to offer a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the former E&B building on Main Street. The Tucker Cruise-In takes place the 2nd Saturday of each month through October 9. The next Cruise-In date is June 12. New hours are 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Visit tuckercruisein.com for information.
