The Vibe 3on3® made a record sixth appearance at Murray Bridge last weekend, with the community turning out in force to join in the basketball, hip hop and healthy living action.
Held at Murray Bridge High School, local participants’ smiling faces were joined by visitors from as far afield as Adelaide, Tailem Bend, Raukkan and Meningie.
“Once again, Murray Bridge showed positive support with a great turnout of enthusiastic participants and spectators”, said Claude Williams, 3on3 Event Coordinator.
“You could tell that every single person who came to the 3on3 had an excellent time, whether they were rapping, rhyming, playing basketball or just watching their kids.
“It was great to see kids from out of town get on so well with the locals, too. It just goes to show that the long haul was well worth the effort!”
Joining the Vibe crew in Murray Bridge was So You Think You Can Dance? top 20 finalist Suri, who spent the weekend hanging out with the locals and teaching young fellas how to dance. Other role models on hand also included former AFL player Che Cockatoo-Collins, rapper Jim Blah and local artist Kevin Kropinyeri Jnr.
