Metro area families and visitors took part in Cumberland-based Gas South’s third annual Cornhole Challenge at SweetWater Brewing Co.’s 420 Fest Sunday at Centennial Olympic Park. Competitors, such as Chris Staley of Marietta, battled for a chance at the grand prize — a VIP SweetWater party courtesy of Gas South and SweetWater.

Thousands of people flocked to the festival as presenting sponsor, Gas South hosted Planet 420 — a special segment of the event dedicated to raising sustainability awareness and teaching Atlantans about being green.

Planet 420 included the Nonprofit Village, where local charities offered sustainability workshops, green product solutions and competed in the Cornhole Challenge. The Planet 420 stage hosted a variety of music throughout the weekend. 

“Gas South has sponsored 420 Fest for the last six years and SweetWater remains a valued partner of ours,” said Chris Coan, vice president of business and government markets at Gas South. “Our promise to give back to the communities we serve, while remaining environmentally conscious, aligns perfectly with the festival and is the reason for Gas South’s continued support. Congratulations to our local Cornhole tournament winners.”
