The A-Town Throw Down is a major basketball tournament at Cedar Beach, and a feather in Allentown's cap. Step child of the former SportsFest, it brings together over 70 boys' and girls' teams in top quality competition. Although Throw Down doesn't refer to trash, unfortunately litter was everywhere Sunday morning. While the park department can be faulted for the overflowing trash by the apparently not enough containers, that doesn't explain the trash under the benches and bleachers, and on the parking lot and grass area used for extra parking. It doesn't explain the litter elsewhere in the park.
In addition to the athletic competition, the tournament is a learning event. Hopefully a few words about littering can be added to the curriculum next year.
