The Norris Lions Club brings you the 47th Annual Norris Day celebration in downtown Norris. Running enthusiasts can begin the day with the Firecracker Road Run sponsored by the Norris Recreation Commission. Later the children’s Dog Show will be held on the Norris Commons, followed by the one-mile Fun Run. No one will want to miss the children’s Wheel Race, the Bicycle Parade, the Water Balloon Toss or the Water-Ball Battles. There will be sack races and duck races, too. One of the highlights of Norris Day is the wonderful barbeque dinner--barbeque pork and chicken with all the sides served by the Norris Lions Club in the Norris Middle School cafeteria from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Tickets for the dinners will be on sale in front of the Norris Post Office, at Hensley’s and at Archers prior to July 4th as well as in the cafeteria that day. 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. Norris Day will conclude with a fireworks display on the Norris Commons, an event funded by the Norris Fire Department, the Norris Recreation Commission, the Norris Lions Club, and contributions from local residents.
