The Head of the Hooch regatta has become a well known event in Chattanooga that is so much fun to watch! The regatta is a head race – competitors row a 4,500-meter (2.8 miles) course on the Tennessee River ending at Ross’s Landing Park. The best place to view the finish line is from the grandstands in Ross’s Landing Park. Spectators can watch from the Walnut Street Bridge, Coolidge Park, or even from the Riverwalk. If you want the closest view of the finish line, be sure to set up a spot at the grandstands at Ross’s Landing. For more details about a regatta and where/how to watch, click here!
