The University of Tennessee Pride of the Southland Marching Band is making a stop in Chattanooga to entertain Vol fans en route to Tuscaloosa, Ala. when the Vols take on the University of Alabama on Saturday, Oct. 26. The band event will be held on Friday, Oct. 25, at noon at Chattanooga’s Miller Park.
Sponsored by the Chattanooga Region UT Knoxville Alumni Chapter and organizer Roger Woody, the annual event is free and open to the public.
“If you can’t make it to the football game, the Pride of the Southland band can give you the feel of what it’s like to be in Neyland Stadium,” said Debbie Adams, past president of the UT Hamilton County Alumni Chapter. “The event is perfect for families—or if you are on your lunch break. The alumni association hopes to gather a large crowd to show our support for the University of Tennessee.”
The Chattanooga Region UT Knoxville Alumni Chapter has again partnered with Chick-Fil-A this year to offer a $5 bag lunch with a chicken sandwich, chips, and a water sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation in celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Additional partners for the event include Coca- Cola, McKee Foods and the city of Chattanooga.
