Emily’s List of Weekend Activities – September 29, 2017

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

Fall is officially here, and that means Halloween events.

If you’re a fan of haunted houses, Ruby Falls’ Haunted Cavern opens Friday night.

It’s been named one of the scariest in the country.

This interactive attraction is more than 20,000 square feet of hair-raising thrills.

It’s open from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7 to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

For a not-so-scary fall activity, head over to Blowing Springs Farm this weekend for some family fun.

There, below Rock City’s Lover’s Leap, there’s a corn maze, hay rides, animals, pumpkins, food and more.

The farm is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. all weekend, and throughout the fall.

Another option to check out cool animals this weekend is the Walker County Ag Festival.

This 12-hour event features all things agriculture – from beekeeping, gardening and canning demonstrations, to animal shows and other activities.

The festival is from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Walker County Ag Center.

If you’re in the mood for drinking, you can head to Dalton on Saturday for the city’s 9th Annual Beer Fest.

There, you can enjoy unlimited samples of craft and domestic beers, plus listen to live music by the Dead Trees and Remembering January.

The University of Georgia vs. University of Tennessee game will even be on the big screen.

The event is from 4 to 8 p.m. on South Depot Street.

And, you can travel the world without even leaving the Scenic City.

The 17th annual Culture Fest is happening this Sunday.

At the event, you can check out a multicultural fashion show and dance contest, plus tons of food from across the globe.

The festival is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
