The weekend has dawned warm and sunny with promise of better weather than our last two in Chattanooga. We are thrilled to be outdoors enjoying our wonderful spring weather while many of our sister cities are still shoveling out from the snow. If you are looking for fun this weekend in Chattanooga, you don’t have to look far. Here are your best bets.
The Chattanooga Lookouts are one of the most beloved and oldest Division AA baseball farm teams in the country. Founded in 1885, the team is currently the farm team of the Minnesota Twins. The stadium is home to one of the best views in Chattanooga, the sun setting over the Tennessee River. With talk of moving the stadium to the southside, now is the time to catch as many games as you can. Tonight, the Looks take on the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp at 7:15 with fireworks to follow. The first 1,000 people through the gate will get a Lookouts commemorative scarf. Tickets are available at the box office. 201 Power Alley.
