Tucker, GA — Tucker Day returned to Main Street on Saturday, Sept. 4.

The long running street festival started in 1957 and has run every year since except 2020 when it was sidelined by the COVID-19 pandemic. The day featured a “human powered” parade with first responders as grand marshals, an arts and craft market, food vendors, three stages of live music and a Kid’s Zone. Organizers say Tucker Day will be moving back to its traditional month, May, in 2022.
