The Waterside location of Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is celebrating the last of winter with the Chattanooga Rail Jam Saturday, Feb. 23 from 4-10 p.m., bringing tons of snow and fun to Chattanooga.
“It’s just an interesting and super-fun event,” said owner Samantha Jones. “At the beginning of the day we’ll have snowball fights with kids and face painting. We’ve paired up with Dodge City who is building us a snowboarding ramp for the competition.
“Nothing like this has been done in Chattanooga before. We want to do these pop-up events that are fun for everyone.”
Mellow Mushroom Waterside will be transformed into a winter wonderland playground with plenty of snow — 6 tons — a mini snowboard park and live music by Rosedale Remedy and Baby Baby. A snowboarding competition will be held for guests who want to compete for prizes.
To register for the snowboarding competition, Shroomers should visit http://railjamsignup.pgtb.me/fGqzpb.
This first installment of Chattanooga Rail Jam focuses on raising money and awareness for Tennessee Riverkeeper. Though admission to the event is free for Shroomers of all ages, participants are strongly encouraged to donate $5 to the nonprofit that protects the Tennessee River and its tributaries. In return for donations guests will receive a voucher from Mellow Mushroom for a complimentary SweetWater draft or Red Bull cocktail.
