Children and adults can pass, shoot and jam at the Just Moo It 3-on-3 basketball tournament, which returns Wednesday, July 4, following the grand parade.

The event is at a new location this year, the lot of the former Bank of America building at Tolt Avenue and Commercial Street. The tournament gets started after the parade, about 12:30 p.m.

Just Moo It! was started by Matt Coltom, a local who wanted to incorporate sports and recreation for all ages into the festival.

Divisions include adult men, co-ed, women 15 years and older; and youth (boys and girls) grades Kindergarten through eighth grade. Teams will have the choice to play competitively or recreationally.

Past players and teams are urged to take part and have a 3-on-3 reunion. Newcomers are also invited to form teams and play ball.

Children are bracketed by grade in the upcoming school year.

Tournament entry is $60 per team, with at least three but no more than four players on each roster. Each team member will receive a T-shirt.

Early registrants get an event T-shirt.
