Trimont FunFest set for this weekend

TRIMONT – Carnivals, pork chops and bean bag tournaments help kick off Trimont FunFest on Friday.

“Beanbag registrations are coming in, but we are hoping people pre-register online if possible,” said Cara Sinn, a FunFest organizer. “We still have room for more registrations for both the adult competition on Friday night as well as the kids tournament on Saturday.”

There also still are some wristbands for unlimited rides the entire weekend, but they are almost sold out. Unlimited weekend wristbands are on sale at Farmers State Bank of Trimont, Triumph State Bank and Welcome TV in Welcome.

There will be wristbands available from J&K Amusements, but those are only good for the day of the purchase.
