It’s the first night for the haunted house, which organizers say is 20,000 square feet of pure terror.

It’s happening from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7 to 10 p.m. on Sunday.

It’s located at 321 Browns Ferry Road in Chattanooga.

You can support a good cause Friday night at the 6th Annual Wine n’ Shine at the Peyton.

There, you can enjoy bluegrass music, and barbeque.

There’s also wine and moonshine tasting and craft beer.

Proceeds benefit Chattanooga’s Speech and Hearing Center, and the Deaf Community Services.

It’s all happening from 7 to 10 p.m.

You can support another great cause at The Signal Friday night.

Rising country music star Chris Lane is putting on a benefit concert there for Dade County Major Tommy Bradford, who was recently injured in the line of duty.

The show also supports local non-profit, Steps2Hope, which helps young adults dealing with loss of mobility from a traumatic event.

The band, Smithfield, will open the concert, which starts at 8:30 p.m.

The weekends are great for brunch, and that means mimosas to go along with it.

Head over to Atlanta Saturday afternoon for the first Mimosa Festival.

There will be plenty of mimosas, bellinis, wine, beer and cider, plus college football, and live music.

The festival is happening from 1 to 5 p.m. at Atlantic Station.

If you like musicals, you’ll want to be in Nashville Saturday night, as Kristin Chenoweth performs with the Nashville Symphony.

She’s starred in Wicked, You’re a Good Man, Charlie, and the TV show, Glee.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Central Time at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
