This year the tournament drew 6000 teams and there were basketball courts set up on the streets for as far as the eye could see. It really was quite amazing to see masses of people so well organized, enjoying the beautiful Spokane weather and a little basketball. There were teams of all shapes and sizes, from cute little girls to grown men dressed as elves. Kareem Abdul Jabar and AC Green even had a team at the Fest.
My siblings, their spouses, and I managed to keep track of all 11 kids among the masses without losing a single one. That was a feat in itself!
There were at least a dozen streets and bridges set up just like this with courts as far as the eye could see.
Navigating this motley crew through the masses of people was no easy task, but we all had so much fun spending time as a family.
