The Navy Band performs in Market Square.

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Navy Week kicked off Monday in Knoxville with a concert by the Navy Band in Market Square and a kids’ event at Chilhowee Park.

Navy Week recognizes the sailors who serve our country and the communities that support them. More than 100 kids showed up at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park to learn more about the U.S. Navy. Divers and sailors from the U.S.S. Constitution were on hand to help kids learn more about science, technology, engineering and math.

This is the seventh year Knoxville has hosted Navy Week. The U.S. Navy will join the Vols baseball team to celebrate Navy Night at Lindsey Nelson Stadium on Tuesday night.
