Don’t miss the 36th Annual Outdoor Basketball Festival this weekend in Oberlin!

The fun will kick off at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 20 with the Legends of the Past game at Oberlin High School, featuring Lorain County hoops stars of yesteryear.

Tournament play will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 22 at Park Street Park.

Sixteen teams of 12 will fight for court dominance in the double-elimination tournament. Games are always played rain or shine.

Planning to watch? Be sure to take plenty to drink and you’ll probably want an umbrella, too — the forecast shows temperatures around 85 degrees with thunderstorms likely.
