The City of Norcross is throwing a pre-Fourth of July block party and you’re invited! Make your way to the heart of downtown historic Norcross on July 3 for food, fun and fireworks during the 2022 edition of Red White and BOOM! The good times start with a bang at 5 p.m. with a kids zone, festive face painting and an assortment of food vendors. For those looking to continue the fun and celebration, head over to one of Norcross’ local hotspots for live music and libations. 

Please note: Absolutely no shade structures (tents or umbrellas) are allowed and will have to be dismantled. ADA parking will be available at City Hall and the Gwinnett County Public Library (Norcross Branch). City staff will be available to transport seniors or anyone needing assistance that day via golf carts.
