What is going on in Chattanooga this weekend? So many fun things. And of course, since it is spring, it will be raining. But don’t let that slow you down. No matter what you are into (beer, live music, classic cars, arts, fairy tales…) there is something for you. Tonight, go here the iconic band, America and relive your youth. Then enjoy the rest of your weekend. Here are your best bets.
Brew Skies Beer and Food Festival
Home brew and culinary delights combine for the second annual Brew Skies Beer & Food Festival. Brew Skies includes a home-brew competition and a food competition for amateur and professional cooks and attendees vote to determine best of the best. Saturday afternoon a the Choo-Choo complex, it is a great way to start your evening. Proceeds will benefit the Chattanooga Breakfast Rotary Club. Admission is $35, and designated driver tickets will be $15. More information is online Saturday, April 14, 5-9 p.m. 1400 Market Street (Choo Choo Gardens)
I grew up with a car dad. As a small child, I could identify cars from the previous decades like most kids today can name cartoon characters. If you, or your dad, love classic cars this weekend’s annual Chattanooga Cruise In is for you. Expected to bring in thousands of car enthusiasts from around the Southeast to the Scenic City, you can chat it up with fellow car lovers. Saturday thousands of cars, motorcycles and vehicles (those that cannot be classified in the other two categories) will be parked near the Coker Tire headquarters at 1317 Chestnut St. Free to the public, guests can also tour the Coker Tire Museum free on the day of the event. Say hi to my dad when you see him. Saturday 8-4pm, 1317 Chestnut.
Fairy Tale Nights
Rock City has a special place in my heart. Growing up seeing the barns, when I finally moved to Chattanooga, I was so excited to see the park. I have never been disappointed during any of the numerous times I have been over the past 19 years. This weekend, you can enjoy the park with a little magic. Fairies and story book characters come to life and fun events are offered following the theme of fairy tales at Fairy Tale Nights. Kids can train to become a knight, decorate their own crown, have tea with Alice and a lot more. 6-8 pm every evening this weekend. Tickets are $12.95 for kids and 22.95 for adults. 1400 Patten Road, Lookout Mountain.
Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy a fantastic weekend here in the Scenic City.
