Bags in the 'Burg

Bags in the Burg event flyer

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. Money is raised by tournament registrations, donations and raffles. In 2017, $8,000 was raised for Battle Scarred Outdoors, and $500 was raised for a local school. Harrisburg Town Center comes alive with children's activities, vendors and rows of cornhole boards for the annual cornhole tournament. Participants can register as individuals or teams and individuals will be placed on a team.
