Tucker, GA — The city of Tucker is hosting in-person TKR Summer of Fun events this year.

The events were virtual last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Summer of Fun first launched in 2018.

“With the number of vaccinations going up and the number of infections going down, we think it’s time to regain this small piece of normalcy,” Mayor Frank Auman said in a press release. “I think it is important that patrons read up on the CDC guidance on mask wearing, especially as all three of these events will be held outdoors.”

Here’s more information from the city of Tucker:

The Summer of Fun kicks off on June 4 with the beloved Movie on Main. This year’s film will be chosen by the people, as they vote in a Facebook poll later this week. That will be followed by the July 3 Celebration of Independence and Fireworks Spectacular. The fireworks show, which will launch from downtown Tucker, will feature live bands, plus the traditional playing of the national anthem and God Bless America. The summer will wrap up on August 3 with National Night Out hosted at Midvale Elementary School.

This year, the City has a growing list of sponsors, including TKR Summer of Fun series sponsors Discover DeKalb and Jacobs.
