If you want to get out of the Tri-Cities this weekend, Hoopfest, one of the largest 3-on-3 basketball tournaments in the world happens in Spokane. The entire downtown is flooded with thousands of teams from all over the country. If you are a fan of basketball or just like a huge party, you don't want to miss the experience.

Hoopfest is like the boat races of Spokane, and is a great time to experiance the city if you have never visited. If you are going for the first time, make sure you are ready to deal with an insaine amount of people. I was born in Spokane and have even played in Hoopfest a few times, although I am no basketball player. Guaranteed you will see a few big time college players and maybe even a pro or two. Yeah, it is that big. Here is the website if you don't believe me..spokanehoopfest.net
