Chattanooga Celebrates July 4th with Pops on the River 2017

Looking for something to do for Independence Day? Celebrate the birth of the ol’ red, white, and blue at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga on July 3, 2017, with the Pops on the River 2017 event. We at Capital Toyota think it’s the best local celebration and fireworks show to honor the nation’s birthday, featuring an outdoor live performance by the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera. The best part? It’s all free.

The live entertainment for the event kicks off at 5:00 pm with the Operation Song, a tribute to veterans written by veteran songwriters. Until 7 pm, the stage will be dedicated to veterans sharing their stories and musical work. Then, by 8 pm, the Symphony & Opera will take the stage to perform traditional patriotic music, followed by the concluding fireworks show at 9:45 pm. There will be concessions onsite and attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.

Coolidge Park closes to vehicular traffic at 4 pm, so make sure you get information on nearby parking and the event’s shuttle services so you don’t get stuck. Other than that, we at Capital Toyota urge you to spend a nice evening out enjoying Pops on the River 2017 with your friends and family in Chattanooga.

Toyota CH-R Features
Toyota C-HR On Display

The 2018 Toyota CH-R may have gotten its world debut at 2016 Geneva Auto Show, but fans recently got their first glance at the new, segment-defying vehicle on American soil at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where the vehicle was on full display.

This compact-sized vehicle has the makings of an SUV in a much smaller package, making it ideal for young drivers and small families. Its chief competitors are likely to be the Chevy Trax, Nissan Juke, and other similarly-sized models.

The new Toyota CH-R’s features include a 2-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque, and the new pint-sized sports utility vehicle is built on the same foundational structure of the much-loved Toyota Prius.

While we don’t yet know pricing for the vehicle, we do know that it will come with the many standard safety features that Toyota Safety Sense has to offer, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

If you would like to learn more about the upcoming 2018 Toyota CH-R or would just like to check out the many other vehicles that Toyota has to offer, contact us or visit us any time here at Capital Toyota in Chattanooga, TN.
