Sports fans have two chances to show their allegiances this weekend as the Chattanooga Lookouts and Chattanooga Market offer team spirit celebrations. A comic book festival will draw authors, artists and actors to Camp Jordan. And a local music marathon will raise funds for a good cause.

There are at least three cancellations to note: a Friday show by Bee Taylor at Songbirds; a weekendlong Party Gras celebration booked at the DoubleTree hotel and Southern Belle; and the Obvious Dad theater company's production of "Ghosts," which would have started Friday but was canceled amid COVID-19 concerns.


- Hunter Museum of American Art, 10 Bluff View, has two upcoming events. Create & Sip: Mini Wonderland Terrariums, 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, is a make-and-take for ages 21 and older inspired by the current exhibition, "Enchanted: A History of Fantasy Illustration."
