The Lifestyles Basketball Tournament at Fast Break was a true nail-biter. The score went back and forth between the Cavs and Lions, ending in a 46-46 tie. That’s how good the game was.
The Lifetones “Think About Spring” singing songs such as “Oh Susanna,” “The Rose” and “Three Little Birds.” Enjoy the highlights from the day and evening concerts at the Lifestyles Education Center.
