    Most of the people use "on" but "at" is also correct, the difference is that: On is more used in the US and At is more used in the UK. In a sentence I will say "On the weekend".

    The preposition on is usually used for:

    - Saying that something is "on" a surface.

    ex: I left my sunglasses ON the table.

    - Saying the days of the week.

    ex: I'll have a History test ON Monday.

    - etc..

    "At" is also a preposition, but it is used for:

    - Telling the time

    ex: I'll see you at 6.30.

    - Pointing a place

    ex: We'll meet at the Café later.

    - etc..

    Hope this helps! ..
