The weather is finally feeling a little fall like, and after Saturday’s rain, we might start getting some fall colors. This is great weather for weekend gatherings with friends, fires in the fire pit and outdoor live music. There are plenty of fun things to do this weekend in Chattanooga. Here are your best bets.
Even if you don’t know Kevin Bate personally, you know his work. Drive down MLK Blvd or in North Chattanooga and chances are you have seen one of his “Faces” murals. Kevin is crazy talented and Friday, you can check out his art, hear local band Shabti and EDM duo MouthGremlin for a super fun night. Hosted by Frequency Arts, the even starts a 7 pm and goes til the wee hours of the morning (or until the old people like me go home at 10). 1804 E. Main Street. Info online.
Girls Preparatory School is hosting a fun fall festival for those who are not quite ready for the local haunted houses. (I qualify to attend.) Geared for kids pre-school through 5th grade, this fall festival will feature carnival games, crafts, snacks, a “not so spooky haunted hallway, inflatables, corn hole and more. Since we are located in the heart of the SEC, football viewing will be available as well. The event is open to the public and free. 3-5 pm. 205 Island Ave.
Glass Street LIVE 2017
Glass House Collective is hosting a rolling street party on Sunday to celebrate the ongoing revitalization of the area. With a community parade, food vendors, classic car show and the unveiling of the new urban farm, this promises to be an excellent showcase of the local community. Participants include Wayne-O-Rama, Art 120 Art bikes (if you haven’t seen a fire breathing dragon bike you have not lived) as well as live music from DJ’s and bands alike. 3-6 pm 2300 Dodson Ave. Free and open to the public.
If you are like us and go all out for Halloween, you want to get the most out of your costume. Saturday, you can strut your stuff on Station Street at the Something Wicked block party. Featuring tons of local live acts including Strung Like A Horse, The Communicators, Nick Lutsko and 10,000 Days, there are multiple venues to enjoy live music and libations. Food trucks will be on hand and there is a serious costume contest with legit prizes. 21 and up. 5:30 pm-2:15 am Tickets $15 per person and available online.
We hope you have a fantastic weekend. Get out and enjoy the beautiful city!
