Gus Macker – Burlington, Iowa
The original 3-on-3 basketball festival of family fun, also known as a Gus Macker Tournament, will be in Burlington, Iowa this summer.
Burlington is excited to host a Gus Macker Tournament for the second year. Burlington is located on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Conveniently located at the intersection of US Highways 34 and 61.
All Macker games will be played along the banks of the Mississippi. Not only will the games be going on, but also lots of activities to keep the whole family entertained: Family Fun Zone, food trucks, and special events.
While in town for Macker, don’t miss out on the many community attractions. Get Stung By the Fun at a Burlington Bees game, watch the cars zoom by at 34 Raceway or splash, zoom, and strike at FunCity. The adults will also have fun shopping locally owned boutique stores in Downtown Burlington, trying their luck at Catfish Bend Casino, or taking in the sounds of live music. Come for the tournament but stay for the experience of Greater Burlington!
All that fun can sure strike up an appetite, but there is no need to go hungry in Greater Burlington! Whether you’re wanting something new and authentic in a locally owned restaurant or a nationally recognized chain. The options are endless.
If you only have time to pick one attraction, you must check out Snake Alley! Ripley’s Believe It or Not! recently recognized Snake Alley as their #1 Odd Spot Across America and “Unbelievably Crooked.”
Make sure to come to town early for registration on Friday evening. Burlington Riverfront Entertainment will be hosting a Friday Fest near the Macker courts with live music on the banks of the Mississippi.
Proceeds from the Burlington Gus Macker tournament will be shared with local youth sports organizations to allow them to enhance the tournament and increase marketing efforts.
