In the fall of each year, Harrisburg Parks & Recreation partners with Harrisburg Business Network (HBN) for a friendly community-wide cornhole competition, raising funds for a different local charity each year. Money is raised through tournament registrations, donations and raffles. Over $5,000 was raised in 2016 for Special Olympics of Cabarrus County. Harrisburg Town Center comes alive with bounce houses, children's activities, vendors and rows of corn hole boards for the annual corn hole tournament. Crafts and refreshments are available for purchase from local merchants. Participants can register as individuals or teams. Individuals will be placed on a team.
