Fort Bum hosts karoke, pool, dart contests

Fort Bum, the newest addition to the Hobo Week celebration, will be held in Jack’s Place Wednesday evening starting at 5:30 p.m.

A Hobo Dart Tournament, usually held as its own event, will be incorporated into the Fort Bum activities. The Hobo Pool Tournament also begins at 5:30 p.m.

For both events, individuals are invited to sign up at 5:30 p.m. They will be randomly placed on a double elimination chart before the competition begins.

Fort Bum festivities will also include a karaoke contest as the pool and dart competitions start to end.

Any person or group of people interested in displaying their musical talents may enter the contest and take the stage.

A panel of judges selected by the Hobo Day Committee will select the winner of the karaoke contest.

Last year the activity was called Jackstock.
