Holiday Starts Early for Chattanooga Families
Fourth of July celebrations officially kicked off today with hundreds of family celebrations. Water, fun, and sun make for the perfect combination to start a holiday weekend early.
The most popular seat in the house was full of laughter and splashes and maybe even some rock collecting. From kids to teens, they say there's no better way to spend time with friends than to take a dip. Nicki Greene tells us "probably just spending time together because we haven't seen each other in a month."
Here at the Marina, families gathered around the grill for some hot dogs and burgers. Others chose to take things easy with a good book and nice amount of shade. And, it appears that the younger crowd just wants to have fun.
But, just as the sun hits it's peak Nicki and her friend, Miranda, say goodbye and head into the water.
