What: Tennessee Valley Fair Dollar Night
When: 3-4:30 p.m.
Where: Chilhowee Park
Price: $1
Cortney's Take: The Tennessee Valley Fair is returning with its fantastically unhealthy food and thrilling rides. To kick it off, the first night of the fair is $1 when you enter between 3-4:30 p.m. It's not often college students get a full night of fun for $1, so why not visit the fair?

What: Pueblo to Pueblo: The Legacy of Southwest Indian Pottery
When: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: McClung Museum
Price: Free
Claire's Take: McClung Museum's new exhibit opens on Saturday. According to the museum website, "Pueblo pottery of the Southwest is one of the most beautiful and enduring artistic traditions in all of Native North America." This will be a great chance to experience culture this weekend and broaden your artistic viewpoints while exploring the anthropological nature of this art.

Sunday, September 8

What: Chase Rice at the Tennessee Valley Fair
When: 8 p.m.
Where: Chilhowee Park
Price: Free with TVF admission, $5 extra for reserved seat
Claire's Take: Not only do you get to go to the fair and enjoy all the rides, displays and local food, but country singer-songwriter Chase Rice will be performing on Sunday night. Rice is headlining his first tour this year and co-wrote Florida-Georgia Line's hit, "Cruise." Rice said of his music on his website, "Whether it's the way I sing it, what I'm singing about or the production of it, I want it to be something fresh and new. If people like it, then great. If people don't, then great. I'm gonna do what I want to do."
