OrcaFest plans to have a ball

With more than a week to go before the first pitch, the annual OrcaFest Slo-pitch Tournament is already full.

PORT McNEILL—With more than a week to go before the first pitch, the annual OrcaFest Slo-pitch Tournament is already full.

But that doesn’t mean there are not opportunities to get in on the fun.

The tourney begins with games Friday and continues through Sunday’s 3:30 p.m. A final at Centennial Field.

Along with concession and a beer garden at Centennial, a highlight of the tourney is the Saturday night dance, and plenty of tickets remained this week.

Dance tickets are $10 and must be purchased in advance. They are available for the next week at Timberland Sports, Gus’s Bar and Grill, The Flower Shoppe and The Clothes Inn. Tickets will also be available at the tourney beer garden Friday evening and throughout Saturday’s games.
