Built in 1890, the 2,376 feet Walnut Street Bridge was the first bridge to connect Chattanooga, Tennessee’s downtown with the North Shore. Edwin Thacher was the chief engineer. Address: 1 Walnut St, Chattanooga, TN 37403, United States Opened: 1890 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!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6YYjZ9fZfg Overall it was a fun event and the hammocking folks from Chattanooga at stoked for another one like it.
