Spring is finally arriving, and with it the classic American outdoor festival. HubFest delivers on all fronts with a flag ceremony, pony rides, and an apple pie contest, just to name a few.
Heritage Park in East Brainerd is expecting up to 4,000 people this year, and for good reason. Kids and families can pay a visit to the petting zoo and or take in the retro fashion show by Collective Clothing. And there’s a Mother’s Day marketplace for any forgetful folks out there to find something perfect (if last-minute) for Mom.
Boy Scout Troop 69 will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs, and all the fixins throughout the festival.
The Dismembered Tennesseeans will be headlining the shindig, with the River City Red Hots Brass Band and the Scenic City Dance Studio, in addition to several other local acts. Eleven-year-old Nicholas Hickman will be dazzling the crowd with his rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner. “
While you’re listening, you can head to any of the several activities, including a mobile gaming van, bocce ball lessons, face painting, arts and crafts, and jewelry making.
HubFest will be held at Heritage Park , 1428 Jenkins Road, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Admission is free. For more information, visit the Facebook page at facebook.com/ChattanoogaEAC or facebook.com/pages/Hubfest-at-Heritage-Park.
