A Knoxville Family’s Guide to May 2020

As East Tennessee slowly reopens, our Knoxville Moms community calendar is starting to fill up with activities and events for the entire family.  The month starts off with a special Mother’s Day parent and child cookie decorating class at The Cutting Edge Classroom.  A Cutting Edge Classroom representative says you can expect smaller class sizes for more personal attention and a safer environment.

For more outdoor fun, the town of Farragut is hosting “Bluegrass on the Lawn.”  The event is part of the popular Lawn Chair Concert Series.  Food trucks will be on hand and picnics are welcome.  You’ll get a front row seat this month to history. Two bomber airplanes used during World War II will be on display at McGhee Tyson Airport.  Ground and flight tours are being offered.  Speaking of history, it’s almost time for Tennesseans to celebrate statehood day!  Marble Springs Historic Site is hosting a fun-filled day for families complete with a craft fair, music, games and more.  Admission is free. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, be sure to check with the organizers of these events and others before you make any plans to attend.  Knoxville Moms wish you and your family a healthy and fun May!
