The annual Tucson Ft. Lowell Soccer Shootout is back!
The fun starts tonight with the famous Ft. Lowell Picnic in the Park, Opening Ceremonies and Soccer Olympics. The tournament, sponsored by the Tucson Association of Realtors, begins on Saturday and ends on Sunday.

Each year, Tucson hosts over 360 competitive and recreational soccer teams that teams from the Western United States, Costa Rica and more! The venue is at the historic Ft. Lowell Park, one of the first forts built to protect Western settlers. Even if your team is not playing in the tournament - come anyway - it's a great time for the whole family - and just watching these kids with their soccer skills is amazing!
I'll be out there enjoying the fun - except on Saturday - when I plan to be home watching the Arizona Cardinals NFL Playoff game!
