I’ll be on two Doctor Who panels Saturday, so I’ll be looking for you. Come give me a shout-out! Come watch the third annual Con Nooga Parade where you can see amazing costumes, and other various floats and vehicles and fans traveling the streets of downtown Chattanooga. Beginning Saturday February 28 at 9 am, the parade will exit the Choo Choo Historical Hotel, travel down Market Street to 13th St., and finish at the Convention Center.

Con Nooga began almost a decade ago in the Chattanooga Choo Choo, and has grown by leaps and bounds, now requiring two venues. Con Nooga will invade the entire Chattanoga Choo Choo complex and 46,000 square feet of space within the Chattanooga Convention Center from Friday, February 27 through Sunday, March 1.

Major activities in the exhibitor hall and over 100 special guests, dealers and fan groups make Con Nooga complete. Attendees can now enjoy three days of programming, seminars, workshops, concerts, acts, and fun based upon numerous genres and fandom encompassing both the Chattanooga Choo Choo and the Chattanooga Convention Center.

Dedicated convention shuttles will run every 15 minutes from each location and the city’s Free Shuttle will also be available. Or you can take a leisurely eight-block walk between the Choo Choo and the Convention Center. Contact Todd Patton for more information at 423-243-7165 or info@connooga.com.
