Free Holiday Carols and Book Event
Norcross is beautiful during the holiday season! We know you enjoy the lights, the tree, the shop decorations, and the carriage rides.
We want to offer you another opportunity to enjoy an evening of holiday merry-making with a holiday get-together at the Norcross Welcome Center and Museum that begins with the Atlanta Carolers, a Dickenson quartet, and continues with Jeff Clemmons reading from his newly-released book, "Rich's: A Southern Institution." Rich's -- the impact it has had on the Atlanta's holiday tradition is etched in the memories of the people who lived in Atlanta during the time it was open and remains a legacy in the events that Atlantan's still enjoy celebrating the season. Who hasn't heard of the Pink Pig and the Rich's Great Tree lighting at the downtown store? Jeff will share stories of these Atlanta traditions and other selections from his book.
We hope you can join us as we look forward to hearing your own memories as we serve you a slice of Rich's famous coconut cake. Tuesday night, the shops in town will be open and you can continue to enjoy your evening with a trip into town and some shopping....maybe even a carriage ride!
