With the new sunshine hours in the morning, getting up to work out this week has been so much easier. Which is great because many of us have been going to bed at 8:30! The end of daylight savings always gets me, but by the weekend, I am usually ready to rally. This weekend, the weather will be cooler, but it is the perfect time to head out and enjoy the foliage before the leaves are gone. Here are your best bets for this weekend in Chattanogoa.
I plan on running on the trails this weekend on Lookout Mountain. The Guild Trail has been my easy, go to trail lately since it is wide and usually populated by fellow runners and hikers. Point Park on the top of Lookout Mountain, along with all national parks, is offering free admission in honor of Veterans Day. This is a great way to view the beautiful foliage across the Tennessee Valley and the hike up and down is really nice as well. You can also take the incline up or drive to the entrance of Point Park. Hours are 8:30-6 pm. More info on the history of the park can be found online.
Roanoke, a rising Americana/ bluegrass band from Nashville, will bring their unique harmonies to Revelry Room Saturday night. Known for their soaring harmonies and excellent musicianship, the band is poised for a national breakout. Click here for details. Saturday, doors open at 8. 41 Station Street. Tickets are $10.
Dunkirk at Imax
This weekend, the World War II movie Dunkirk will begin weekend showings at the Tennessee Aquarium Imax. As a special Veterans Day tribute, the movie’s opening screening tonight will be introduced by retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Noah Long, trustee for the Charles H. Coolidge Medal of Honor Heritage Center. The movie, set in France during May and June of 1940, is poised to win all kinds of awards for directing, cinematography and music. Plus, the story is fascinating about average sailors assisting in the rescue of 400,000 allied soldiers. Friday and Saturday evenings through Nov. 25. Ticket and more info are available online.
The Chattanooga Market
We are nearing the end of the Chattanooga Market’s outdoor season. Sunday features Big Band Day with Sweet Georgia Sound. Now is the time to get ahead on your holiday shopping and enjoy the last of the fall produce from local farmers. Open 11-4 pm, the market is free and features food trucks, food, crafts and local vendors.
Enjoy your weekend!
