DARIEN, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Gus Macker basketball tournament has been relocated this year. The event is moving from downtown Buffalo to Darien Lake.

The annual three-on-three tournament will be held at Darien Lake on July 19 and July 20.

There will be free parking and free admission for participants. The tournament was held in downtown Buffalo for years but recently event organizers said the event had become too costly to remain in Buffalo.

The Gus Macker attracted thousands of players and nearly 50,000 spectators to downtown Buffalo in previous years.
