PC Pirates host Fourth of July Cornhole event
PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula College Alumni Pirates in the Park Cornhole Tournament will be held along the waterfront at Pebble Beach park, at the corner of West Railroad Avenue and North Oak Street, as part of a community Fourth of July celebration Thursday.
Cornhole is a lawn game in which players throw bean bags at a raised platform or board with a hole in the end. Points are scored by tossing the bags inside the hole or throwing the bags on the board.
Two-person teams with players ages 18 years or older can compete in the event.
Registration will be held from 11 a.m. to noon, with the tournament beginning at noon and finishing up by 5 p.m.
The cost is $35 per team for the public, $25 for Peninsula College alumni.
Cash prizes are available — the winning team earns $200, while the runner-ups bag $50.

Other activities planned at the park on the holiday include a Balls in the Boat fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity, in which golfers can attempt to chip biodegradable golf balls into a boat off shore; a putt for wine contest; a Cedars at Dungeness food tent catered by the course’s Stymies Bar & Grill; and a beer garden hosted by the Port Angeles Lefties.
Home run derby
PORT ANGELES — What’s more American than baseball, apple pie and hot dogs? Port Angeles Lefties players will compete in a home run derby event just off City Pier in Port Angeles from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Fourth of July.
Lefties owner Matt Acker said the event will be very similar to the 2018 West Coast League All-Star Game Home Run Derby held last July at City Pier.
Players will swing for the fences from a barge just offshore. A containment-boom normally used for oil spills will be set up to serve as a “fence” and keep the balls in one area for easier pickup.
Lefties players and coaches also will march in the grand parade at 6 p.m.
PORT ANGELES — A pickleball tournament will be held on the upper parking deck of the Landing Mall, 115 E. Railroad Ave., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Fourth of July. The event is open to all and prizes will be awarded to winners.
