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.
