Cumberland, MD - The Queen City Bar-Athalon, a new event concept created by Mezzos owner, Dan Bowser, will take place at noon on Saturday, September 30 in downtown Cumberland. The Downtown Development Commission (DDC) is sponsoring the event.

Local establishments Mezzos, Fore Axes, JZ's Pub and Centre Street

traveling competition of skill with axe throwing, darts, bowling and corn hole. Each member of the winning team will receive a $50 gift card to a downtown establishment. Entry fee is $15 per person and the event is for those 21 years of age or older.

"This is a great way to support your local establishments during a
challenging time with downtown construction," says Melinda Kelleher, Executive Director of the DDC. "We invite and encourage everyone to build a team for an afternoon of fun competition."

You can sign up for a team at any of the participating bars.
