The City of Tucker once again will be the summertime place to be as officials announced Monday the return of the popular “TKR Summer of Fun” series. The three-event series, which first launched in 2018 and was held largely virtually a year ago, will be held in-person this year.

“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,” said Mayor Frank Auman. “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.”

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.
