March Magic Hoopfest Brings Interactive Fan Experience Back to Jenison Field House, March 20-22

EAST LANSING, Mich. – As just one more exciting sign of spring, the March Magic Hoopfest is set to return to the Jenison Field House offering hands-on hoops fun for attendees of all ages from March 20-22, 2014.

Held in conjunction with the MHSAA Boys State Basketball tournaments at the Breslin Center, March Magic Hoopfest is a fun public event across the street at Jenison Field House. The event is free to 2014 MHSAA tournament ticket holders, and for all others admission is just two dollars per person.

“The March Magic Hoopfest sets off a great weekend of MHSAA tournament games and helps create a multi-day event which will involve the Lansing area and thousands of visitors coming to town,” said Mike Price of the Greater Lansing Sports Authority. “If you’re coming to the championships, Hoopfest is a destination to visit before and after the games; and if you’re not coming to the games, Hoopfest is a fun, wholesome, inexpensive, family activity.”

Attendees can participate in numerous basketball activities and skill-stations. See below for a complete list of activities. Also on tap is a basketball clinic that will take place Saturday morning for junior high/middle school students, conducted by the legendary basketball coaches from around the state of Michigan.
