Happy Friday! The sun is shining, the air is crisp and there is a lot of fun to be had in Chattanooga this weekend. We have had a very damp winter with mild temperatures, so the brief cold snap is welcome. This weekend is a good weekend to get out and enjoy Chattanooga it all its winter glory. Here are your best bets.
Lookout Wild Film Festival
This year is the 6th year of the Lookout Wild Film Festival which brings outdoor and conservation short films to the Chattanooga area and draws visitors from all over the southeast for the weekend. Since Chattanooga is an epicenter of outdoor recreation including climbing, hiking, white water, cycling and flat water paddle, it makes sense the festival makes its home here. Films cover everything from hiking in Norway to women firefighters in California. Thursday-Sunday, The Tivoli, Tickets can be purchased online and schedule of films and the “after party” acts are located here.
