Will Chattanooga Chuck see his Shadow?

Please join the Tennessee Aquarium, Saturday at 10:30 AM, to find out if we will have 6 more weeks of winter. According to chief seasonal hog-nosticator, if he sees his shadow on Saturday morning there will be 6 more weeks of winter, but if he doesn’t see his shadow that means Spring will come early to the Tennessee Valley.

Enjoy your Hometown!

Chattanooga weather has been pretty fickle this week. We’ve been stuck inside for most of the week due to well below freezing temperatures. Get out and explore! Take a walk around the neighborhood with the dog. Rent a bike and ride across the Market Street Bridge down to Coolidge Park. Park and walk down the street visiting local shops. Or take the kids to a park to let them run off their pent up energy!
