Emily’s List of Weekend Activities – July 28, 2017

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — There’s a lot to do in Chattanooga, and in nearby cities this weekend.

You can check out some live music in downtown Chattanooga Friday night.

Rick Rushing & the Blues Strangers, and The Greyhounds are both performing at the Nightfall Concert Series.

There’s also food and drinks available at the free event.

The first show started at 7 p.m., Friday, at Miller Plaza.

Ever watched a movie in a cave before? If you haven’t, now’s your chance!

Cherokee Caverns in Knoxville is showing the classic The Goonies movie inside the cave.

It’s described as a cool and comfy place to be Saturday afternoon, since it’s 58 degrees inside.

There are five showings at the Caverns, the first starting at noon.

If you’re on the hunt for some new home decor, head over to Monteagle for the 58th Annual Mountain Market for Arts and Crafts this weekend.

Check out hundreds of artists and crafters at this annual event held the last weekend in July.

There will also be food, and prizes given away every half hour.

The event is taking place most of the day on Saturday and Sunday.

A little further west in Nashville, the Sideshow Fringe Festival is underway.

If you like the circus, this event’s for you.

This performing arts festival features everything from puppetry, clowning and the aerial arts, to dance and theatre.

Activities are happening throughout the afternoon and night Saturday and Sunday.

The festival ends next Sunday, August 6.

Restaurant Week in Chattanooga will wrap up this weekend, with a Five Star Food Fight at the First Tennessee Pavilion.

It’s not a physical food fight, but local chefs will get to the Chattanooga Market before it opens. They’ll set up their work stations, and shop for fresh ingredients being sold at the market.

The chefs will then cook up a surprise dish with those ingredients and chicken, and will have their dishes taste tested by judges.

You won’t want to miss the competition.

The market is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
