March Magic Hoopfest is without a doubt one of my favorite events all year long. Why? Because March is for Basketball and Hoopfest is a serving of basketball for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Get out to Hoopfest for these fun skill stations and get a selfie with the one and only Hoopie! The fact is clear - when it comes to family-friendly basketball events - Hoopfest is Lansing's BEST!

The Dean Trailways 3-Point Challenge Just like the NBA! This three point challenge tests contestants' long range shooting skills from behind the arc. See if you can sink 12 shots in 30 seconds. Top point totals will be posted each day! NCG Cinema Half-Court Shot Can you sink a long-distance game-winning buzzer beater? Heres your chance! Two Men & A Truck Around-the-World This is a playground classic! Just like around the world but set to a timer. Who can get around the fastest? First one back home is the winner. Skills Challenge Can you dribble and dish the rock like Earvin Magic Johnson? Show your best ball handling skills and bring the magic back to Jenison! Buffalo Wild Wings Slam Dunk Everyone loves to see a great dunk. Heres your chance to fly. Three dunks per turn. Sparrow Kids Zone Games Heres a place for our future stars to play. Stay as long as you want! The only requirement is to have fun!
