The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway on Friday announced that it has formed a partnership with the Folk School of Chattanooga to provide musical entertainment for guests visiting this summer. There will be live music at the lower station of the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway from noon to 4 p.m. each Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
"We are looking forward to entertaining the tens of thousands of visitors for the summer that visit the Incline," said Christie Burns, program director for the Folk School of Chattanooga. "We will have great folk and mountain music performances to enhance the visitor experience at the Incline," she added.
The Folk School of Chattanooga is one addition to the summer experience in St. Elmo, on select dates local magicians will perform for the crowds as they head up America's Most Amazing Mile and take in Chattanooga's best view high atop Lookout Mountain at the upper Incline station.
"The better job we do to entertain visitors and create 'buzz' about the Incline, the more people will visit," said Lisa Maragnano, executive director of CARTA, "In addition to the entertainment, the Incline will soon be launching an enhanced website (ridetheincline.com
) that will give visitors easier access to tickets and information about the Incline on their smartphones and tablets."
