Mario Kart tournaments for all ages coming to Dixie Twin Drive-In

Have you ever dreamed of playing video games on the big screen? Connect E-Sports is partnering with Dixie Twin Drive-In to host two Mario Kart tournaments this summer.

The tournaments are Monday, July 25 and Monday, August 22 starting at 9:30 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Competitors will get a chance to compete for cash prizes, movie passes, a Dixie Twin shirt and a drawstring bag.

“We wanted to partner with Connect E-Sports and bring a video game tournament to the Drive-In to produce an event Dayton has never seen before,” said Alan Copeland, general manager of Dixie Twin Drive-In. “These events will help bring various generations together for a fun night out featuring video-games.”

Connect E-Sports, an E-Sports center located in downtown Dayton, said all matches will be recorded and later uploaded to their YouTube channel.

Anyone interested in competing must pre-register for $25. Spectators are $15 per car load at the door.
