It’s your chance to be treated like royalty, with both tea and lunch.

It’s happening all week long from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Get a head start on your Fourth of July celebrations at the Chattanooga Music Club’s Patriotic Organ Concert Tuesday night.

The program will also feature a salute to the military with a local Color Guard.

The show starts at 7 p.m. at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium.

Head over to the Comedy Catch on Thursday night to see Shawn Banks.

He’s known for his “happy-sarcastic” comedy, with stories and slanted point of views on everyday life.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

You can also hit the water on Friday, as part of a kayak tour with a park ranger.

The four-hour trip follows the same route the U.S. soldiers took, who opened the famous “Cracker Line” during the Civil War.

It’s all happening Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
