While the people in Andalusia may have the trademark on domino tournaments, we in Carnegie have been hosting our Championship Tournament since 1944, long before they even thought about having a tournament. Sports Illustrated even printed an article in 1967 issue detailing the atmosphere and results of the tournament. This year will mark our 69th annual tournament, which brings domino players from around the local area, state and region. There is no fee to enter, and the only prizes are bragging rights the “world” over. Come join us on Saturday, February 9 at the Carnegie Town Park’s Vernon Crose Building for the right to be known as a world champion! The competition begins at 10 AM, registration opens at 8 AM. If you don’t have a playing partner, we can find one for you the day of the tournament.
The annual Carnegie Fair & Canna Festival will start this Thursday night with lots of fun, food and great entertainment. The fair opens on Thursday at 7 PM, with great carnival rides, more food choices than you can count, fun games for the kids, and boot-stomping entertainment every night. Make sure to join us on all three nights and on Saturday morning for the parade and Canna Festival fun as well.
