This weekend features many great activities for everyone to do.  This first event is for all the football fans out there.  The Pigskin Roundup Spring Jam is coming to Burgess-Snow Stadium at Jacksonville State.  Eight local teams from Calhoun County will play on two nights.  You can come on out to the stadium to watch all four games or you can watch the games live on TV 24.  Here are the game schedules:

Of course football is not the only thing happening this weekend.  If you are a fan of yard sales you will enjoy this.  The US 11 Antique Alley is from May 17th to May 20th.  This 502 mile yard sale from Meridian, MS to Bristol, VA will feature numerous people trying to sell stuff at roadside yard sales.  And many towns along the route will also feature events for the entire family to do.  Plan on seeing lots of traffic on US 11 and nearby Interstate 59 throughout the weekend.  For more information go to http://www.us11antiquealley.com/
