Address: 1 Walnut St, Chattanooga, TN 37403, United States
Total length: 724 m (~2,375 feet)
Construction started: 1889
Bridge type: Truss bridge
The team at Color Cloud Hammocks put together a Flashmob on the Walnut Street Bridge via a Facebook Event!
“Join the Hammock Flash Mob! We’re looking for 90-100 people to help us hang hammocks down the length of Walnut Street Bridge! Hammock ownership is not required!”
Overall it was a great success, but the city was not impressed. They now fine anyone hanging hammocks on the bridge $50.00! 😵 (Let the homies hang!)
Overall it was a fun event and the hammocking folks from Chattanooga at stoked for another one like it.
