It's Labor Day weekend, and that means the end of summer festivities. One tradition is the Cherokee National Holiday in Tahlequah.

The festival commemorates the signing of the Cherokee Nation Constitution back in 1839. There are traditional arts and crafts, storytelling, and even a Pow-Wow.

More than 80,000 people are expected to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event this weekend.
