GALLIPOLIS — The second annual Hoop Project will return to Gallipolis on Friday following a court dedication ceremony on Friday evening.


The dedication ceremony that will begin at 6:30 p.m., according to the group’s Twitter account, will be held on First Avenue at the Gallipolis City Park.


All this week, volunteers have been busy working to construct the full courts that line First Avenue at the park, and, on Wednesday afternoon some of the finishing touches were be completed by a group of artists, who were decorating the streets just in time for the event.


The deadline to enter the 3-on-3 basketball tournament was Tuesday, but organizers are hopeful that crowds return for this year’s event to cheer on their favorite teams.


The event that begins Friday will continue through Sunday, with a $1,000 dunk contest, a skills competition, 3-point contest, face painting, and inflatables on Saturday, along with other features for the whole family.


This non-profit project is supported by the Downtown Revitalization Project.
