Three-on-three basketball took over Victoria Street on the weekend, with more than 2,000 visitors heading downtown for the 72-team Hoops in the Loops tournament, according to organizers.

The second annual Hoops in the Loops tournament had divisions for girls, boys and adults.

All proceeds from the tournament will go toward KidSport and removing the financial barriers that prevent the underprivileged from playing organized sports.

There were family-fun events to participate in and adults took part in the Summer League Block Party, which included music, art displays, beer, wine, cider, diverse cuisine, mini-events and games.
