At first, The Great Pumpkin Race doesn't seem too different from any other 5K: runners take their marks and dash to the finish line. But before they can cross that line, they must swap their inner athlete for their inner artist. The race's finale requires participants grab and gut a pumpkin, and then create an original carving. Only with their newly designed pumpkin in tow can they consider their race completed. That night, The Great Pumpkin Race's runners and spectators gather to watch the lighting of the day's jack-o'-lanterns.

The Chattanooga Zoo opened its doors in 1937 with an exhibit containing two rhesus monkeys. Pretty soon, it had expanded to include bobcats, lions, and gators, until eventually becoming the venerable non-profit institution it is today, supporting conservation efforts for rare and endangered species around the world.

In the zoo's forest area, chimps, wildcats, and tortoises roam their habitats to the sound of churning water beneath two waterfalls. Red pandas scurry around a Himalayan habitat, and spider monkeys spin gossamer webs in the jungle area. Kids can play with goats and sheep at the petting zoo, or take a few revolutions on the carousel. With a refurbished frame from 1927, it spins guests on the backs of hand-carved seats fashioned after endangered animals such as snow leopards and low lying gorillas.

Behind the scenes, the zoo's caretakers work to rehabilitate hundreds of animals each year so that they can return to the wild. They also lead conservation efforts for rare species—including snow leopards, fennec foxes, and cotton-top tamarins—and educate thousands of students annually with interactive events catered to school curricula.

Over the course of 50 to 55 minutes, the Missionary Ridge Local takes train-spotters on a 6-mile travel through time along Chattanooga's original rail lines. Once the classic, old-timey steam or diesel locomotive has chugged its way out of Grand Junction station, it will pass through the Missionary Ridge Tunnel, which predates both the Civil War and its disappointing sequels, the Civil War Reloaded and Civil War Revolutions. When they arrive at East Chattanooga Depot, locomotive looky-loos will also witness the two ways to turn around a train. One involves the more familiar turntable method, and the other uses a wye, resulting in a maneuver similar to a three-point car turn but that doesn't involve slamming into the trash cans in your alley and waking the neighbors. The Missionary Ridge Local is closed Sunday–Friday in January and February.
