On May 21, Rock City celebrates Founder’s Day and the first 80 people through the gates will be able to “See Rock City” for the original ticket price of 25 cents. At 1 p.m. that same day, Rocky, the mascot, will host a birthday party with sugar cookies and lemonade, the same menu as opening day.
Martha Bell will be attending the party, just like she did in 1932, when she was five years old. Bell is not only one of the first Rock City Gardens visitors, she also took on the role of Mother Goose at the attraction from 1983 to 2005, and helped conduct outreach at the local schools during that time.
The birthday party will take place at Lover’s Leap, one of the most scenic vistas in all of the Southeast. Recently added elevated terrace seating with two fireplaces offers seating for guests to dine and take in the “view of seven states.” The New Binkley Brothers, Rock City’s “house band,” will entertain guests with authentic Old-Time, a style of Southern Appalachia folk music, from the new permanent stage.
Founder’s Day is just one of many special events planned throughout the year at Rock City. Shamrock City and EarthDayz were held in March and April. The Southern Blooms Festival, celebrating the gardens, is set for May 4-6. Summer Music Weekends, Rocktoberfest, the Enchanted MAiZE/Blowing Scream Farm and the Enchanted Garden of Lights are all scheduled for later this year: www.seerockcity.com
The Chanticleer Inn Bed & Breakfast still has some rooms available and is located directly across the street from Rock City Gardens, high atop Lookout Mountain and 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga. Visit our web site at: www.stayatchanticleer.com

November 12, 2011 – 7:30 am start time
The marathon has sold out, but several charity slots are available through www.RunForMiracles.org (select “Miracle Team”).
The marathon has reached its limit of 700 participants. Regular registration is now closed and there is no wait list. Only charity slots remain.
In 2007, the race introduced a series of commemorative marathon finisher’s medals. Each year the marathon finisher’s medal features a different state monument located in the battlefield. This year’s commemorative marathon finisher’s medal will feature Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry was recognized as one of the most respected in the Civil War. In September, 1863, the Seventh Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry is credited with opening and closing the Battle of Chickamauga. The command is noted for its unusual bravery and received praise from the commander of the army and from the commanders of division and brigade.
During the Chickamauga campaign during the late summer of 1863, the Ninth Calvary regiment fought in several skirmishes and captured part of the advance guard of Lt. Gen. James Longstreet’s corps. During the Battle of Chickamauga, it guarded the right flank of the Union arm.
Previous marathon medals featured monuments from the following states:
- Tennessee (2010)
- South Carolina (2009)
- Michigan (2008)
- Georgia (2007)
The marathon, which starts and finishes at the 6th Cavalry museum located near the park’s visitor’s center, features two loops in the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park.
The mostly paved course is challenging but not extraordinarily difficult. Numerous runners have qualified for the Boston Marathon on this course. Results will be provided to the Boston Athletic Assoc. Approximately 23 miles of the double loop portion of the course winds through the historic military park. Traffic is usually light in the park. Sentries will be posted at each major turn and all turns will be marked. Each mile and the half marathon point will be marked.
The Chanticleer Inn Bed & Breakfast still has rooms available. Please visit our website at: www.stayatchanticleer.com or call us direct at
(706) 820-2002. We are located 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, 20 minutes from the Chickakauga Battlefield and a mountain top away.
