Put on your costume and come to downtown Norcross for a fun night out!
Light Up Norcross is a combination costume parade and lantern parade. And of course, there’s a costume contest to top it all off and inspire your creativity.
It all takes place on Saturday, October 19, 2019, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. The event is FREE to attend and participate in.
If you don’t have a lantern, you can buy one on the cheap — for just $10 at the Norcross Welcome Center and various downtown merchants, or for $15 at the event. (Cash or check only.)
The parade will be lead by a New Orleans-style marching band.
