This coming weekend, lacrosse players and enthusiasts in Edmond will gather together for a two-day lacrosse tournament called Laxapalooza. The event happens every year, and lacrosse teams from all over the country come to compete in the two-day competition. The Edmond Lacrosse Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 2006, is hosting the event, and it also provides lacrosse programs and training to interested boys and girls throughout the year.
Thirty teams will be participating in Laxapalooza 2012, including representatives from Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. The Edmond Lacrosse Club is proud to have the opportunity to host the event, as well as the different teams and their families. They said that the event not only benefits their club, but it also has a huge positive economic impact to the city. Local vendors are allowed to sell lacrosse-related products during the event, and players will be donating canned goods to the Hope Center Edmond.
Laxapalooza is open to the public. Those who wish to witness a good game of lacrosse can go to Cheyenne Middle School, 1271 W Covell Road and J.L. Mitch Park, 2722 Marilyn Williams Dr. from 8:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.
