It all started with an idea about blueberries. The city wanted to have a blueberry day with all the restaurants in downtown Norcross doing blueberry dishes and drinks. Mike Holley worked at The Iron Horse Tavern in downtown Norcross and figured why not add blues music to the combination and call it Bluesberry! The city loved the idea—and a tradition was born.So bring a chair or blanket and a friend, then kick back as this group of great musicians entertains you with their funky vibes! And don’t forget to check out what bluesy specials our merchants have to offer by looking for the special “Bluesberry” decal in store windows.
