The holiday parties have started with a flurry (get it?) and most of us have one or even two a night. I love teh holidays because it gives me a chance to see people I miss all year long, such as the parents that I served on PTA with, past clients and of course, family. The holidays are a time when Chattanooga puts on it’s fancy dress and truly shines,with lights at Rock City and the Chattanooga Zoo as examples. After you go see Star Wars, there is still a lot of fun to be had if you are in the spirit. Here are your best bets.
Beauty and the Beast
I have it on good authority from a 6 year old that attended last weekend, this production of Beauty and the Beast is “wonderful”. The Chattanooga Theater Centre presents Disney’s Beauty and the Beast this Friday and Saturday, complete with fantastic costumes, beautiful sets and of course, the classic Beauty and the Beast characters. Tickets range from $11-25 and can be found online. Shows are 8 pm Friday and 2:30 and 8 pm on Saturday.
Santa Pub Crawl
Are you one of those people who loves wearing a onesie in public? Saturday’s Santa Pub Crawl is the event for you! Hundred’s of people dressed as Santa, reindeer, elves and just about any Christmas character or theme you can think of, take to the streets to mingle and collect toys for the Salvation Army Angel Tree, both with toys and a percentage of sales. Beginning at Clyde’s on Main and Feed Co., revelers can sample specialty drinks and mingle with friends as they traverse local bars such as Honest Pint and Hair of the Dog via the shuttle service. With raffles, music and a lot of excited people, this is a very fun event to attend. Info, including participating bars online. 3pm- closing time.
Home for the Holidays
Home for the Holidays is one of the Chattanooga holiday traditions that brings all of the season’s best to the Tivoli in a fun and entertaining experience featuring the Chattanooga symphony, Santa, singers and more. . This year, Home for the Holidays will feature special guest and Chattanooga vocalist, Neshawn Calloway. Known as The Jewel of the South, the Tivoli seems like magic every time I go, and a holiday show seems even more special there. Shows are Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 3. Tickets are available online.
We hope you have a fantastic weekend. Don’t share the Star Wars spoilers!
