‘A Night With Rangers’ Brings Laughs, Brews
Bays Mountain Park visits Bays Mountain Brewing Company for comedy program
Join Bays Mountain Park at Bays Mountain Brewing Company next Thursday, August 19 for “A Night with Rangers.” It’s a little like stand-up comedy, but with real nature stories from Bays Mountain Park naturalists.
Rangers are a wealth of knowledge, skills, and stories from 50 years on the mountain. Some stories may seem to be tall talks or even a big fish story—you know, it gets bigger each time it’s told. Enjoy a brew and listen to stories, told by rangers both past and present. This penultimate program in the “Night with Rangers” series features Fred Hilton and Bob Culler.
See if you can distinguish a tall tale or a big fish story. Come out to Bays Mountain Brewing Company for the live conversations that start at 6:30 p.m. Bays Mountain Park will also livestream the program via its Facebook page for those unable to attend in person.
Enjoy a pint of the 50th Anniversary Bays Mountain Ale too! For each pint purchased, one dollar will go back to Bays Mountain Park. “A Night with Rangers” will be hosted one more time on Thursday, October 21.
To learn more about Bays Mountain Park and how you can be a part of its 50th Anniversary celebrations, go to baysmountain.com or call 423-229-9447.

About the City of Kingsport
Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 53,000) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,500-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
