One Year Later: Snapshots of July 16th observances
Saturday was a day filled with memories and tributes to the Fallen Five.
People from all over the Tennessee Valley remembered July 16 with different events and ceremonies, paying tribute to the Fallen Five and the day one year ago that forever changed Chattanooga.
A run, called the Chattanooga Heroes Walk/Run kicked off the day, and went past the U.S. Naval Operations Support Center, the site of the second and deadly attack.
A ceremony downtown on the Tennessee River, Chattanooga Remembers, honored the men by scattering flower petals into the river.
The NoogaStrong Memorial Ride started at Thunder Creek Harley-Davidson and ended at the Chattanooga National Cemetery.
Later in the afternoon, an interfaith service at UTC, Chattanooga Strong Together: From Grief to Hope, offered inspiration and solace.
This evening, Friends of the Festival and the City of Chattanooga will present a special patriotic edition of Riverfront Nights from 6:30pm - 10:00pm at Ross' Landing.
The evening's finalé will be the illumination of artist Kevin Bate's huge mural of the Fallen Five, a project that was months in the making.
