Bags in the 'Burg

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 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. Vendors are on site including food and beer!  Participants can register as individuals or teams. Individuals will be placed on a team.
