Jack Neely, a local historian, will also guide a Riverwalk Tour. Meanwhile, Alan Sims, also known as the Knoxville Urban Guy, will lead a downtown Knoxville walk while Carol Evans with the Legacy Parks Foundation, will lead a guided hike through Morningside Park.

Breweries will also lead a guided "Brewery Slow Ride" to the Knoxville Adventure Center. Volunteer Princess will also have a sightseeing casino cruise, while Knoxville Cycleboats will host a BYOB river cruise.

Volunteer Landing Marina will also offer free pontoon boat shuttles to Suttree Landing. There will also be special activities at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, James White's Fort and Blount Mansion.
