The weekend weather should be wonderful. Go enjoy!

Stickball: Players from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, the Chickasaw Nation and the Mississippi Choctaw Nations will compete in three games of stickball — one of North America's oldest sports — at Historic Fourth Ward Activity Field Saturday from 10:45am-3pm.

  • Delegation representatives will hold a panel discussion that evening at the Carlos Museum and via zoom.

Why it matters: Organized by the Atlanta Beltline, the free event marks the first time in 200 years that native nations have played stickball on traditional Muscogee land in Atlanta, Beltline officials say.
