hi fellow Chattanoogans~
we are a family of 5 moving in on July 2!!! We are ecstatic...what are some good get-your-mid-off-unpacking, experience-the-fun-of-the-Scenic-City July 4th events you'd reccommend?

We have a 5.5 year old, a 2.5 year old and a 13 month old, too.

Also, what's the great BBQ place in town that was highlighted on CBS' "Sunday Morning" show, anyone know?


Thanks!!!

Welcome to Chattanooga!

Pops in the Park (Chattanooga Symphony + fireworks at Coolidge Park on the river) is great, but get there early if you want a good spot on the green for a picnic blanket and view. Also, parking is an issue as it gets very crowded. If the Lookouts (minor league baseball team) are in town, they will have fireworks. The ballpark is great, a very fun place to spend your 4th.

Not sure which BBQ place was on CBS Sunday Morning. I watch the show regularly, but must have missed that episode. We have dozens of great BBQ places all over the city, including Shuford's, Waycrazies, Choo-Choo, Sweeny's, Sticky Fingers, Porker's, and Rib & Loin.

I'm with McMar. We LOVE the pops in the park. Little kids everywhere, families laying out on summer blankets, coolers full of snacks and some great music. This is the life The traffic is hard upon entering and exiting but it's worth it.
