Emily’s List: Easter Weekend

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Easter weekend is coming up, and there’s a lot to do here in Chattanooga, and in nearby cities.

If you like some good jazz music, you still have time to make it out to a tribute to the late Clyde Stubblefield, tonight. The iconic drummer from Chattanooga was known for his r&b and funk and soul drum patterns. You can see drum performances by Darrell Kelly and others, along with a house band and vocals. The event is from 7-9 tonight at the Waterhouse Pavilion on Market Street.

Tomorrow’s the last day you can hop on over to the Chattanooga Zoo to take advantage of its Hug a Bunny Day. At this spring event, you can get your picture taken with the Easter bunny, enjoy games and crafts, and of course see the zoo animals and bunnies. Hug a Bunny Day activities are free with zoo admission, but Easter bunny photos are an extra charge. The event is from 9-5, Saturday.

If live animals aren’t your thing, you could always go on an Easter themed cruise on the Southern Belle Riverboat. On Saturday, have breakfast with the Easter bunny, and enjoy a magic show, or have lunch with him on Sunday, and enjoy live music.The breakfast is Saturday at 9:30 am. Lunch is at 1 pm on Sunday.

If you’re looking to get out of town for the holiday weekend, and want to see a good country concert, Nashville is the place to be. Loretta Lynn will be performing at the Ryman Auditorium at 8 pm Saturday night.

You can celebrate Easter by watching the Atlanta Braves take on the San Diego Padres Sunday afternoon.
The game is at 1:35 at Atlanta’s Suntrust Park.
