Ready To Rock The Riverfront With Spinning Los Trompos
Think of a spinning top.
Make it larger-than-life.
Wrap it in colorful fabric with traditional Mexican designs.
Climb into the top for a ride - or make it spin from the outside.
Eight of these tops, in various shapes and colors - known as Los Trompos - are the heart of this year’s Rock the Riverfront activities at Chattanooga Green Park, starting Friday through April 16th.
