Miller-Motte Technical College will be a place of extremes Saturday, Dec. 14, with its second annual Winter Fest promising frozen precip and a hot young talent.
"Where else can you play in real snow, go sledding, take photos with Santa, win great prizes from local businesses and find out how to further your education and career?" says Lisa Roche, associate director of career services, in a news release.
Headlining the event is singer/actress Lucy Hale, perhaps best known for her role as Aria Montgomery in ABC Family's hit series "Pretty Little Liars." The 24-year-old Memphis native was one of five winners of the "American Idol" spinoff "American Juniors" in 2003 and signed with Hollywood Records in June 2012. Her as-yet-untitled debut album, set for release in spring 2014, was recorded in Nashville and has a country vibe.
Chattanooga campus director June Kearns says Winter Fest is continuing as a tradition "based on last year's urging by the community."
Roche says the inaugural event drew nearly 3,000 people.
