Norcross festival to feature first 5K

NORCROSS -- The city of Norcross' annual Strawberry Stroll Festival will have a new addition this year, one that will benefit a local charity.

The inaugural Strawberry Stroll 5K will be held at 10 a.m. May 28 at Thrasher Park.

With Norcross companies RockTenn and RTS Packaging covering all the expenses related to the event, all proceeds of the race will go directly to Kingdom Kids, a local nonprofit that grants wishes for "children facing challenging circumstances."

Registration is $25 and can be completed by visiting www.rtspackaging.com/5k.

Norcross' Strawberry Stroll Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown Norcross, and feature locally grown strawberries and "everything you can imagine that's made with them," as prepared by chefs at local eateries.
