Polk County Parks and Recreation will be holding the grand opening of the Stearns Park Gaga Pit on Saturday, July 16. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.


Gaga is a fast-moving and high-energy variant of dodgeball that has gained popularity in recent years. It is played in a large fenced-in area, usually an octagon or hexagon, called a gaga pit. Players dodge, run, and jump while hitting the ball at each other with their hands, and are eliminated if the ball strikes them on or below the knee.
