Are you a cornhole player? Can you throw that bag filled with corn? Can you knock it through the hole or leave it dangling on the board for points?
Then come one, come all to the Rock N Green Tomato Festival . They are having a $250 winner take all tournament on Saturday July 23rd. Teams check in at 11:30am.
This is the 6th Annual Rock N Green Tomato Festival, and the Cornhole tournament has become a tradition as well. This is one of Dayton’s biggest tournaments, but the atmosphere is laid back and background activities are live bands and food and craft vendors. It is a perfect chance to bring the family, a few lawn chairs and let them listen to the free music and enjoy the kids activities as well.
