There’s so much to do in town that it can be a little overwhelming, to say the least, and if you are spending your first Christmas in Chattanooga, there is always a lot to do-ga.
This one is off the beaten path, and a lot of people are excited about it.
The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will present a Christmas open house at the Cravens House, located on Lookout Mountain. The historic Civil War-era home will be decorated, but you will need to make a reservation if you wish to take a tour of the home. The cost is free and runs December 1-2 at 6-8 P.M.
If you love story time, a magical holiday ball, and celebrating other holidays, then make sure to check out the Barnes & Noble at Hamilton Place Mall. On Friday, December 1 at 7 P.M., they will have a reading of The Polar Express. If you are big kid at heart, or if you have some younger siblings, come on by!
If you are more spellbound by dances, then make sure to stop in on December 8th at 7 P.M. for the Harry Potter Magical Holiday Ball! Join Barnes & Noble for a holiday formal with music, magic, games, and giveaways.
That is not all Barnes & Noble is having so make sure to check their Facebook page at facebook.com/BNChattanooga.
If you love the performing arts, then this is the time of year to get out and watch some great shows. The Chattanooga area is bustling with stage talent and shows, from The Nutcracker, to A Christmas Carol, and much much more. Be sure to check out chattanoogapulse.com and click on the calendar tab to find a show for you.
Still looking for some gifts for a friends, family, or a loved one? Then head to the Chattanooga Holiday Market at the Chattanooga Convention Center every weekend until December 18. The market moves indoors and gets holly and jolly for the Christmas season.
