What's Happening in Middle and East Tennessee
The weather is warming up, and it’s the perfect season to explore events in Middle and East Tennessee. Whether you’re looking to support local businesses, or you simply want to get out and enjoy some family fun, here are a few Tennessee events happening during the month of July:
Buddy Liner Fireworks Display at Athens Regional Park
You won’t want to miss the tremendous fireworks display scheduled for 9:30 p.m. at Athens Regional Park. While the park will be closed during the display for safety reasons, viewers can sit back and watch from neighboring campgrounds or the North Mouse Creek area. Visitors can also enjoy the soundtrack for the show on three radio stations, including:
• WSJQ 101.7 FM
• WLAR 1460 AM
• 95.1 FM
You can find the details in WBIR’s recent story, linked here.
On Fridays throughout the summer, you can catch live, local music at Miller Plaza and Miller Park during Nightfall. Shows begin at 7 p.m., and this year’s schedule features an incredible lineup of musicians. Best of all, concert entry is free!
SouthEast Bank is proud to support this fun, community event in Chattanooga. You can learn more about this week’s lineup in our recent blog post, linked here, or visit the Nightfall website to view the full summer schedule.
