Heavy rain doesn’t stop Celebration


Monday’s evening performance of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration was moved to 5 p.m. due to the weather.  

According to Celebration CEO Warren Wells, the National Weather Service predicted that all the rain from the remnants of Hurricane Ida would be out of the area by Tuesday night.  

In between the rain, here are some things to look forward to this week:

Military Night

Military Appreciation Night will be at the Friday evening performance. All military personnel and veterans are asked to wear their uniforms. The ceremony will also include first responders this year as well.  

Veterans and one guest will receive free admission and parking. Contact the Celebration office at (931) 684-5915 for more information.  

And in case it does rain, the Tennessee Walking Horse National Museum, located on the public square in historic Wartrace, will be open all week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for the museum is free.
