Also new this year, the Pride in Port committee has organized a cornhole tournament and square dancing. Starting at 3:00 p.m., the cornhole tournament will take place on the field between Schreiber and Weber, challenging teams of children or adults and children to play for their elementary school, middle school house, or high school team/club activity.

At 5:15 p.m., after cornhole has ended, the field will be the site of free line dancing and square dancing. Everyone can participate regardless of age. Come with a partner or by yourself and get matched up!
