Chalk it up to a love of Harlem and all things Basketball - plus a zeal for seeing the kids have a ball, while smiling all-day.

This Saturday, Rucker Park will be full with Basketball Lovers, Basketball Players, Children, Celebrities, High School Teams, Rides, Ponies, Horses, Food, Fun, Performances and More. And it's free.

"It's a gift to the community," says Greg Marius, CEO and Founder of the Entertainers Basketball Classic, which puts the Family Day on and, since 1980, has brought Celebrities, Pro Players and Streetball to Harlem's Legendary Rucker Park. "It's more an event to let the community know we appreciate them on a whole, as well as them allowing us to play loud music late in the evening." Laughs Marius

On Saturday, kids can ride Ponies and Horses, get on several rides, eat for free and Play Play Play.

Rap Artist Fat Joe will perform center court at 6pm and the Denver Nuggets Star Carmelo Anthony will be on hand to run a Basketball Clinic for a pre-selected group of Harlem youth (This group has been pre-selected from charitable organizations that serve the youth of Harlem, all availability have been taken)
