Riverbend 2012 Starts Friday – An annual tradition for over 30 years makes its return to the Chattanooga’s amazing riverfront. Riverbend Festival is known as Chattanooga’s family reunion. This year Eric Church, The Band Perry, Foreigner, Chris Tomlin The Goo Goo Dolls, Happy Together: A 70’s Revival Show and American Idol 2011 runner-up Lauren Alaina will be on the very unique Coca-Cola stage on the Tennessee River.  I will be blogging on this throughout the week and all next week, there will be pictures live from the event here, Facebook and Twitter.
