Dormhole.net named Heritage Days sponsor

Posted: Monday, March 4, 2013

Heritage Days 2013 will be celebrated in Huntington Wednesday, June 19 through Sunday, June 23. The theme is Steamin’ into Huntington and the official sponsor has been named as Dormhole.net. Dormhole is an exciting new game developed in Huntington by Dormhole Games, a subsidiary of Innovative Packaging, a business to business (B2B) industrial packaging company.

Dormhole Games has developed a portable version of the Cornhole game which is designed to be played indoors and the idea for it came to its designers when they were at a tailgate party with no Cornhole game. The game is made of folded corrugated boards that occupy a space of 37” by 24” and comes complete with a set of eight bean bags that weigh 7 ounces each. The game folds for easy storage such as under a bed or in a closet. It is designed for use in dormitory rooms, basements, garages and is portable to any location.

This year’s Heritage Days theme will allow participants in the annual Heritage Days Parade and other activities to depict the history of the railroad, beginning when the first passenger train arrived in Huntington on January 7, 1856, as their float or activity theme. This part of Huntington’s history will give Heritage Days participants the opportunity to get to know a little more about the railroads that helped to develop Huntington County. The theme is part of an ongoing effort to “explore” Huntington’s heritage. The official logo is a picture of an early steam engine.

Heritage Days will ‘kick-off” on Wednesday, June 19 with the annual ice cream social and Thursday, June 20 will bring the Chief of the Flint Springs Tribe Breakfast and the Rotary Club Strawberry Feed at Hier's Park.

The Car Show will take place in downtown Huntington on Friday evening, June 21 with proceeds going to the Huntington Disaster Team. A fish fry will take place at the Masonic Lodge. The Eagles will have a food tent. The Marketplace will also begin on Friday evening downtown and continue through Saturday evening.
