Presented by EPB, Normal Park will host the 11th annual NormalPalooza festival on Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.   The event will include food, fun, music and an artisan market at the Normal Park Upper School at 1219 W. Mississippi Ave. in North Chattanooga.  

Paleface will headline the music stage and Ryan Oyer, Uncle Lightnin and Birds with Fleas will also perform during the day.  PPRWRK will educate and engage with a live wheat pasta art mural installation and there will be an aerialist show.  

This year the Tennessee Valley LEGO Club will have a larger exhibition than before and adventure-seekers will explore the "spider-jump" bungee, gyrosphere, inflatables, games and a "kids zone" section.  A collection of Chattanooga's food trucks and an array of local and regional artisans create a market atmosphere at this annual fall festival. 

Partnering with local museums, Normal Park Museum Magnet School was established in 2002.  The zoned magnet school has been chosen repeatedly as a School of Excellence by the Magnet Schools of America, is celebrated nationwide for its achievements and studied world-wide for its model of experiential learning and the collaboration with the community, families, museums and local business community.
