MainX24 festival celebrates 10 years of showcasing revitalized Southside

Posted: Updated:

A 24 hour block party is celebrating Main Street and the surrounding Southside area in Chattanooga. This year marks a decade since the MainX24 festival started.

The event features more than 100 activities including parades, food, music, and shopping. Channel 3 spoke with one couple who said the festival showcases the revitalized Southside.

"A lot of people are getting out and seeing the Southside for the first time. Maybe they're taking a second look. Maybe they're living here. Really, it's a nice place and it's stepped up. It's an amazing place," Ronnie Roach of Chattanooga said.

The event continues until 8 a.m. on Sunday.
