You can get into the mood for fall fun when the Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce kicks off a brand new event on Oct. 3 – the Corntober BrewFest.
Held at the chamber's spacious new headquarters on North Cass Street, the event has several big draws: A variety of fall beers and wines, along with a tempting array of foods and live music by regional performers. But then there's the lure of cornhole.
What the chamber is billing as the State Championship Cornhole Tournament will kick off at 3 p.m., with teams and individuals competing in the game that's like the beanbag toss carnival games we all enjoyed as children.
“We’re excited to hold the State Championship Cornhole Tournament here in Middletown.” said Roxane Ferguson, the executive director of the chamber. “The event supports our scholarships and business incubator and is a fun way to get the community together to play a very popular game, as well as enjoy great food and the falls brews.”
The drinking, eating and competition will last until 10 p.m., and should be a big draw for Middletown residents and those outside the area.
Admission is $5, and if you want to gather some friends and register a cornhole team, it's $40 to register. Contributions will also be accepted for the Scholarship Fund. Sponsorships are available. More details will be posted as the event gets closer, but you can visit www.maccde.com in the meantime.
The chamber's headquarters is at 402 N. Cass St., Middletown.
