The News 4 Surprise Squad began surprising viewers across Nashville on April 9, 2014.

The Surprise Squad makes their way around town helping make the day a little brighter for some lucky News 4 viewers. You never know where the Squad may show up or what they'll be doing when they get there.

You can keep up with the Surprise Squad by liking the News 4 Facebook page. We may give you hints about the next stop or give you a preview about a recent stop by the Squad. So, keep a close eye on our timeline.
