Holiday Entertainment Takes Flight at BNA

Travelers are encouraged to check the BNA events schedule to add some festivities to their holiday travel in December.

Nashville International Airport (BNA) is kicking off its holiday celebration this week with live music, puppet performances, carolers, balloon artists and three scheduled appearances from Santa Claus through Dec. 23.

On Dec. 14, BNA will host Metro Nashville Public Library/Wishing Chair Productions’ Puppet Truck featuring the marionette version of Hansel and Gretel, the classic Brothers Grimm tale told with the charming Peeko Puppets. Show times are 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and will be performed at the South Terminal Stage, near Green Beans Coffee, just outside the security exit check point.

Travelers are encouraged to check the events schedule at flynashville.com/events to add some festivities to their holiday travel in December.

BNA’s holiday entertainment will be performed at four locations throughout the airport, the South Terminal Stage, near Green Beans Coffee, the Concourse A/B Rotunda, the new BNA Live Stage in Concourse C, and the North Terminal, along with three performances roaming in the terminal areas.
