The Binghamton Pond HockeyTournament and Winter Festival is scheduled for February 20 and 21 at Chenango Valley State Park.  The event will run both days from 8:00 AM til 5:00 PM.

The tournament will feature as many as 40 teams and 300 or more players.  Along with hockey, there will be a Pond Hockey Trail Run, a separate area for ice skating away from the tournament, live music and plenty of food.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier and the Do It For Darin Foundation.  Both provide initiatives for youth suicide prevention and youth mental health programs and awareness.  Additional information is available at bingpondfest.com.
