Norris Day celebrates 49 years

The 49th Annual Norris Day will be held on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 in downtown Norris. The Norris Lions Club sponsors the annual event. Fun, food, and fireworks for the entire family will be available for all who attend.

Running enthusiasts can begin the day with the Firecracker Road Run sponsored by the Norris Recreation Commission.

The fun continues with the Three Legged Race followed by the Water Balloon Toss and the Water-ball Battles. There will be sack races and duck races, too.

One of the highlights of Norris Day is the delicious barbecue dinner served by the Norris Lions club. Barbecue pork and chicken dinners will be available in the cafeteria of the Norris Middle School from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Proceeds from the ticket sales will fund many of the community projects supported by the Norris Lions Club each year.

Stop by the booths on the Norris Commons and on the grounds of the Norris Middle School where many of our community organizations will have displays. This is an excellent way to learn more about their activities and how they serve us.

The evening program will be held in the Norris Lions Community Pavilion, starting at 6:30 pm. During the program, the Lions Honoree will be presented. The Honoree exemplifies all the best tradition of service to the community.

After the evening program a concert on the commons will be presented on the stage beside the Pavilion. Norris Day will conclude with a fireworks display on the Norris Commons, an event organized by the Norris Fire Department with funds raised by from the Norris Lions Club and from local residents.
