The Lighted Boat Parade on the Tennessee River – This is a traditional event kicking off the holiday season. Watercraft of all sizes deck out in lights and parade around the Tennessee Riverpark and North Shore areas.

I enjoy seeing things like this in unexpected places.


Chattanooga’s Parade on The River 2013

Boats decorated in their holiday finest lights paraded down the 21st Century Riverfront tonight to welcome in the Christmas season. This was the first year we went and we were amazed at how great these personal water craft were decked out. Crowds on both the North Shore and Riverfront were treated tonight. It was something different to see, not every city has this sort of thing.


Our Evening On The Tennessee River

Tonight we went out to eat and then spent some time on the water. We took a cruise on the Chattanooga Ducks which is an 6 wheel drive transport amphibious transport vehicle used during World War II. Our journey went up and down the Tennessee Riverfront area. The Tennessee Aquarium, The Hunter Museum, The John Ross Bridge and the Walnut Street Bridge are among the great points of interest. Chattanooga is a world class city with some great photo opportunities.

These are just 10 of the many pictures I took. Stay tuned as I post more later.
