Spokane hosts the world’s largest three-on-three basketball tournament in the streets of downtown. For 21 years, during the last weekend in June, Spokane’s Hoopfest takes over the streets of downtown Spokane with roughly 7,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers, 250,000 players and fans on 458 courts covering 42 city blocks. Ballers from third grade to 93-years-old take to the courts over two days until the best teams in each bracket are named. The event holds a Guinness World Record for the largest streetball tournament from back in 2009, and even a few NBA players have been known to join the crowd.
