Cornhole tournament to return

The third annual cornhole tournament will return to downtown Goshen for the Aug. 2 First Fridays celebration. The theme: CornFest.

Tournament spots are available. However, players need to assess both their skill level and how much they really, really want to win, organizers said.

"This year we have two levels of competition in the tournament," said Adrienne Nesbitt, event director for Eyedart Creative Studio, which coordinates First Fridays. "For those looking to have a fun, relaxing night with their friends while perhaps visiting our beer tent, we recommend the For Fun category. For those with more of a competitive streak or more experience in the world of kicking butt and taking names, we recommend the For Glory category."

Competition will take place in the 100 block of East Washington Street. In addition to the tournament, there will be food, games, a mechanical bull, a fashion show and performances by Lalo Cura and Los Ortega.

Scavenger hunt a new way to explore museum

The Elkhart County Historical Museum will be having a scavenger hunt Saturday. The event will run through the museum’s normal hours of operation from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Guests will be given a scavenger hunt form. This will contain a series of clues and questions to answer as they look through the exhibits.

“We think that this will allow our visitors to experience the museum in a different way,” said Curator of Education Patrick McGuire. “Our intent is for visitors to keep an eye out and look for specific things as they tour the museum. Some questions may deal with a particular exhibit label that deals with the early history of the county or another question you may have to identify a maker of a particular tool. It is just a great way for adults and children to visit the museum and enhance their visit by keeping an open eye and attention to detail.
