Christmas at the Courthouse

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Bringing a little holiday spirit to the courthouse, Christmas at the Courthouse will be celebrated December 5th-13th, 11:30 am – 12:30pm in the City/County Courts Building.

The annual tradition changes the appearance of a building that usually sees a fair amount of difficult situations for visitors. Former County Attorney Mike Mahn is credited with starting the program in 1984, according to our news partners at the Times Free Press.
