The Knoxville Visitor’s Center has kids crafts on the third Friday of the month. They are during the day, so I assume they are for little kids. Have you been to this event?

Uniquely Kids Friday events are at the Knoxville Visitor Center. It is located at 301 S. Gay Street from 11:30 – 1:00.

Fishin’ at the Cove June 1, 2014

Filed under: Outdoor,Special Event — Elizabeth @ 11:55 am

Mark your calendars!

From the TWRA’s website:  Every year on the second Saturday in June the TWRA allows all residents and non-residents to fish without a license. Children that are 15 years of age or younger may fish without a license for the entire week starting on Free Fishing Day and continuing through the following Friday. Children younger than 13 may fish without a license at any time of the year. The TWRA sponsors many Kids Free Fishing Day events and stocks thousand of pounds of catfish to help make the events quality experiences for young anglers.
