Finally, Friday is here! After the storms of yesterday, we are settling into glorious weather this weekend. High school graduations are keeping some families busy. If you have people in town and are looking for ways to celebrate or you are just looking for fun yourself, here are your best bets for a fun weekend in Chattanooga, May 13-15.
Chattanooga Cornhole Classic
Fun is the name of the game for tonight's cornhole classic to benefit the Tennessee Chapter of the ALS Association. Held in honor of the beloved mother who loved a good party and who suffered from ALS, this event is guaranteed to be a blast. You can compete with your team of crackerjack cornhole players or just hangout and enjoy the festivities, including a bounce house and face painting for kids, cash bar, food trucks and raffles for some great prizes. Starts at 5pm at First Tennessee Plaza. 1826 Reggie White Blvd.
Spirits in the Wild
Chattanooga is lucky to have a great little zoo. The Chattanooga Zoo is just the right size, not overwhelming in size, but with enough exhibits to be interesting and fun. Tomorrow night you can support the Chattanooga Zoo at Spirits in the Wild. This adult event features a variety of wines, beers and spirits from around the world, along with some great food from Chattanooga's local restaurants. Live music and the residents of the zoo (which are great to view at night) complete the great evening. Tickets are available online and benefit the Chattanooga Zoo. 6-10pm 301 Holtzclaw Ave.
Strawberry Festival at the Chattanooga Market
I can eat my weight in strawberries. I love them so much and so does everyone else! This weekend, you can get everything strawberry at the Chattanooga Market. From strawberry salsa, strawberry cake all the way to strawberry soda, you can enjoy it all. Arrive early and grab a flat of local strawberries before they are all gone. Live music fromCaney Creek Company at 12:30, food trucks, arts and crafts and tons of fun can be enjoyed as well. 11-4 Reggie White Blvd. Free entrance.
Have a lovely weekend and get outside, the weather will be fantastic!
