The Gus Macker Tournament has been a Quincy Tradition for the last 23 years.
Even after a rain delay on the first day, players took the court, ready to show off their skills in the art form best known as basketball.
People come from around the country just to play some three-on-three basketball.
The Gus Macker is a mobile basketball tournament that stops in about 40 cities around the country, bringing the community together.
This was the 40th anniversary of the tournament nationwide.
Quincy hosts the tourney in its historic downtown square.
The event has shrunk in size, but still brought more than 400 teams to play on Quincy streets.
The last round of games takes place around 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Morris, Illinois is the next destination for the tournament.
