Chattanooga celebrates RiverRocks Outdoor Festival
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Chattanooga is holding a celebration of the outdoors and healthy lifestyles.
RiverRocks festival activities in the Chattanooga area continue through Oct. 10 and some proceeds will benefit land trusts and conservation groups.
A promotion statement says the more than 90 events include rock climbing, trail running, kayaking, rowing, cycling, off-road biking, hiking and hang gliding for both expert and novice competitors.
Live music, hot air balloons and river cruises are also on the lineup.
Organizers plan to redistribute 50 cents of every dollar collected by RiverRocks to nonprofit trusts and conservancies in the Tennessee Valley.
