"I Hate Winter" Cornhole Tournament - 1st Weekend in March (postponed for 2023)

The "I Hate Winter" Cornhole Tournament is hosted in the Scherr-Howe Event Center the first weekend in March. This tournament started for two reasons. Firstly, although close to spring, March can be notoriously harsh in Northern South Dakota; secondly, cornhole is a midwest favorite. Put the two together and you come up with an event which allows us to enjoy the great game of cornhole while the snow is still around.

Registration for the tournament opens around mid-January each year.

Trunk or Treat - October 31 (Halloween)

Trunk or Treat is an event that has gained nationwide popularity and has most recently been adopted by the Mobridge Community in 2019. Mobridge's Trunk or Treat consists of local businesses decorating the trunk of a vehicle, parking in a central location, and allowing children to "trunk" or treat from vehicle to vehicle. While a relatively new event to Mobridge, Trunk or Treat has only grown and the Chamber only wants to make it better.

The Annual Trunk or Treat event takes place in the High School parking lot from 5 - 6:30pm.
