Throwback Thursday From The Archives: 1985 Riverbend Preview

Chattanooga (WDEF) – Some things about Riverbend don’t change.

But others have.

For instance, giving the media a tour of the site for a look at what is new this year, is a long time tradition for Riverbend.

But our tour 30 years ago shows a lot of changes.

In 1985, there was no Tennessee Aquarium, or the 21st century riverfront improvements, or the green lawn.

Just Riverfront parkway and a lot of pavement.

In 1985, Riverbend officials let us dangle a camera in a bucket swinging from a crane.

So take a bird’s eye view of Riverbend when it was young.
