WALLA WALLA - The YMCA's annual three-on-three basketball tournament will make a jump this year, officials say.
The 19th annual event will move slightly west as a compromise for ongoing problems for downtown Walla Walla merchants over the two and a half days the street is closed.
This year's tournament, scheduled for Aug. 4 and 5, will move down Main Street between Second and Fifth avenues, where more merchants tend to be closed on the weekends than the previous location.
The relocation has been approved by the board of directors for the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation and the YMCA, officials said.
More details on the changeover to come.
