It is "Navy Week" in the Scenic City.  

Each year the United States Navy selects only 14 cities across the country to host a "Navy Week" with the mission of expanding its outreach.

This year it's Chattanooga's turn.

Rear Admiral Paul Pearigen shared his goal for the week.

“It's a good opportunity to interact with people one-on-one, get out there and talk to them, see some of their stuff, some of their cool gear and equipment to see what they do. And also for us, as a Navy, to thank Chattanoogans for their support,” says Pearigen.
