The Peoria Park District (PPD) will kick off a summer of active, healthy, and positive activities with a weekend of events taking place Friday, May 21st and Saturday, May 22nd.
Streets Belong to Me will serve as the opening ceremony for a City-Wide 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament that will be held, Saturday, May 22nd. The 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will take place on Water St, between Eaton Blvd and Hamilton Blvd, next to Peoria’s Riverfront Park. Teams will be composed of students ages 3rd through 8th grade from across the Peoria area and the games will culminate in two teams being crowned “Kings” and “Queens” of the courts. In addition to official tournament games, visitors and players will be able to enjoy local food, music, and other recreational activities in Riverfront Park during the duration of the Tournament.
The weekend of events including Streets Belong to Me and the City-Wide 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament are intended to not only provide positive and healthy activities for youth and their families, but they will also introduce visitors and the greater community to events, sports leagues, fitness programs, and educational programming that PPD will be providing all summer long. As our parks and facilities carefully and intentionally reimagine our role during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we look forward to adding healthy vibrant options that can help make playing in Peoria one of the best parts of the summer!
