First Thursday

Come to downtown Norcross and enjoy an especially exciting atmosphere beginning Thursday, June 1 as the city’s downtown merchants kick off “First Thursdays”—an evening where shops and restaurants have activities surrounding their extended hours and specials.

Every first Thursday through October will have a theme that brings added interest to downtown. A “Mad Hatter Party” is the theme for the June 1 “First Thursdays” event. Throughout the “First Thursdays” events there will be activities such as musicians, caricature drawings by Big Head Cartoons’ Mark Mandel, face painting, artist’s displays, jugglers and 1962 World Champion yo-yo trickster, Bob Rule.

The kickoff “Mad Hatter” theme will feature renowned Atlanta singer-songwriter and guitarist Ben Wade. Shops and restaurants will feature sidewalk shopping and special offers. Downtown merchant hours will be extended until 8 p.m.
