BURLINGTON,IA GUS MACKER
Gus Macker – Burlington
The ONLY Iowa 2018 Tournament
The original 3-on-3 basketball festival of family fun, also known as a Gus Macker Tournament, will be in Burlington, Iowa this summer.
2018 is the first year for Burlington to host a Gus Macker Tournament. Burlington is located on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Conveniently located at the intersection of US Highways 34 and 61.
Inside the event grounds, 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 local vendors.
Burlington was the first capitol of the Iowa Territory from 1838 – 1840. The area has grown from its days as a bustling river port and active rail yards to a growing manufacturing community.
While in town for Macker, don’t miss out on the many community attractions. Get Stung By the Fun at a Burlington Bees game, hike around one of our beautiful county or city parks, 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.
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.”
Come for the tournament but stay for the experience of Greater Burlington!
Make sure to come to town early for registration on Friday evening. Burlington Steamboat Days 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.
