Grand Island is set to become the hub for all things Gus Macker. The celebrated 3-on-3 basketball tournament is just weeks away and will take place along Whitehaven Road on June 4th and 5th.

Organizers say this year the tournament have a festival like atmosphere complete with local food trucks. "We are really excited about the Gus Macker this year," said Grand Island Town Supervisor Nathan McMurray. "It's going to be a really family orientated event. Come watch the good players. Come cheer on the bad players. Let's have a lot of good times."

Registration for the tournament is now closed. More than 350 teams have signed up to play this year.
