Tucker Day turns 60

5/2/2014, 6:01 a.m.

Tucker Day will mark its Diamond Jubilee on May 10 with a fun-filled outdoor festival featuring live entertainment, arts and crafts, food, and kids activities, and vendor applications are now being accepted.

Families, businesses, vendors, and artists will get together in downtown Tucker and enjoy the festivities that start at 9 a.m. and last until 5 p.m.

The nonprofit Tucker MainStreet Alliance is hosting the Diamond Jubilee. The festival started out on the town’s Main Street 60 years ago.

Three stages will feature live entertainment, arts and crafts vendors will show off their wares, and food stalls will dish out culinary delights. There will be plenty of activities for children sponsored by the Tucker Business Association.

Main Street will close to traffic at 6 p.m. on May 9 but businesses will remain open. No parking will be available on Main Street from Railroad Avenue to LaVista Road. Visit www.tuckerday.com.
