Brookhaven celebrates 1 year in DeKalb Co.

Posted: Updated:

The city of Brookhaven will spend the next several days celebrating its one-year birthday in DeKalb County.

The first birthday celebration at Blackburn Park on Saturday includes a 3K run, 1-mile fun run and a 50-yard dash for children.

The Saturday celebration also included live music, Santa Claus and the lighting of a 12-foot evergreen tree.

The mayor and city council will also bury a time capsule that will remain sealed for 25 years.

"We are excited to celebrate our first year of operations as a city. We have accomplished so much in the first year and hope all residents come out to celebrate the success of Brookhaven," said mayor J. Max Davis.

The city was officially incorporated Dec. 17 and will host a formal birthday commemoration ceremony Tuesday at Town Brookhaven to thank those who helped build the city.
