LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Dirt Bowl is returning to Louisville!

For nearly four decades, the basketball tournament helped produce some of the most promising college and professional basketball players in the country. It ended several years ago because of a variety of factors.

Mayor Greg Fischer has teamed up with councilwoman Cheri Bryant-Hamilton to bring the tournament back to Shawnee Park.

The new Dirt Bowl is more than a basketball tournament, it's also a community event and celebration.

It kicks off Saturday at Shawnee Park. For more information call Metro Parks at 664-0780.
