The annual Hoopfest will visit Spokane again this weekend…and it is going to be a HOT HOOP FEST! Temperature is expected to reach triple digits and no one in their right mind would want to be playing on tarmac under the noonday sun! But they do by the thousands…Spokane Hoopfest is the biggest
- 3-on-3 on Earth
- 7,000 Teams
- 3,000 Volunteers
- 225,000 Fans spanning
- 450 Courts which cover
- 42 City Blocks!
How much fun this is for families and individuals alike! The entire downtown area of Spokane shuts down and the streets become basketball courts. Stadium seating goes up on the sidewalks, street vendors are out soliciting their wares, food and drink and all of the restaurants and pubs welcome the hot spectators with welcome arms to quench their thirst and fill their bellies. Having twins that are basketball enthusiast, we now participate in this annual ritual with hundreds of other families and groups of 3 that become composed of every type imaginable. From co-ed groups to father-son teams and work buddies. It is quite the draw.
If you’re on the page with how wonderful outdoor events can be, think ‘beyond basketball’, and you’ll understand the love affair Spokanites have for this ‘one-of-a-kind’ outdoor festival! They shop, eat from Spokane’s surprising worldwide cuisine and they jump for joy, scream loud for their teams and then talk about the results for weeks after. All sorts of interactive entertainment are to be found on the streets of Spokane during this welcomed festival.
When you consider the the entire population of Spokane is only 211,000 – then note that 225,000 Fans come to participate and support this event, you’ll have some idea of the kind of town Spokane, Washington is. The main point to be considered is how the events that go throughout the year serve and support raising a family here. That alone is not an easy find. As you will see, I am a Real Estate Agent here in Spokane and I’ve got at last count at least 100 reason’s why you may like to consider moving here and hire me to help you find a suitable home in our region.
I was amazed to learn Hoopfest is one of the many events that Spokane hosts that draws people from all over the world. Having moved from the nation’s 5th largest city, to what people call little ‘ole Spokane, it continues to amaze me how “big” this “little” city really is!
Spokane is, I’ll have to say, the greatest move our family could ever have made when we moved here! How fun would it be to have a second home in Spokane, where you could fly in and participate in our many events and enjoy to beautiful weather, or stay year round as we do.
While inventory / listings are few, I do have houses that would make wonderful homes for some of you. There are people moving here from all over the world because the company they work for is relocating here! That alone should be of interest if your shopping for investment property. I also have land that you can build your dream home on; Spokane is home to award winning contractors that you can elect to package with these beautiful home sites.
It doesn’t cost anything to shop and they won’t raise your taxes if you just want to look around! My name is Carrie Meyer; why not call me and let me show you around this area…. you’ll be glad you did. B U T wait till after this event is over – I’ll be sweltering downtown Spokane with the rest of them – my twin sons are on a team and will, no doubt, be doing me proud on one of the courts!
