Fort Thomas Matters has been keeping you up to date on the city's upcoming Independence Day festivities, and Tower Park is certainly the place to be the afternoon of July 4th. Along with the many activities taking place at Tower Park, the Michael Bradford Memorial Cornhole Tournament is not to be missed.
Ft. Thomas resident Michael Bradford was tragically killed in 2013 while working in Afghanistan. Bradford was a beloved member of the Fort Thomas community, and a true American hero. Bradford is often remembered by friends and family for his sense of humor, intelligence, and love for the game of cornhole. Since Fort Thomas has been hosting cornhole tournaments on July 4th for the past few years, Bradford's family and friends saw this as the perfect opportunity to honor his memory. Bradford's twin brothers, Chris and Kenny, have taken the lead on making this year's tournament a success.
