24th Annual 3-on-3 Basketball
Keeping with tradition, the YMCA's 2017 Peach Basket Classic was held during the first full weekend in August in downtown Walla Walla.
Despite the sweltering triple digit heat and smoke-hazed skies, 231 teams from all around the Pacific Northwest bounced, jostled, and shot basketballs at hoops in order to move up in their bracket. By Sunday afternoon, 31 teams had earned the title of Champion in their respective divisions.
An early morning look down Main Street shows an empty lineup of basketball hoops waiting for players to begin warming up.
Hoops were set up for three blocks along Main Street south of Second, and also along the side streets.
Teams were at liberty to design their own uniforms.
Some were more creative than others.
