A whole weekend festival bringing music and lights together during DAY and NIGHT is taking place April 21-23 at the site of the former Harriet Tubman housing, at 1901 Roanoke Ave., across from Hope for the Inner City.

The East Chatt Highlight Festival is presented by Glass House Collective and Empower (green|spaces) and features “The Pool,” an interactive lighted art exhibit where all ages are encouraged to come out to play, dance and move as the colors change with and around them. We are ready and EXCITED!

On Friday, April 21st we will kick off the weekend at 7:30pm with “Lyrical Lights,” a Hip-Hop and Spoken Word showcase featuring a talented array of local Chattanooga poets and musicians.
