Local teams took to the basketball court—and their donkeys— April 4 as a fundraiser for Let Freedom Ring, Mt. Morris' annual summer festival.

Four teams competed in Donkey Basketball where riders had to be mounted on their steed in order to shoot.

The event was held on the basketball court of the David L. Rahn Junior High in Mt. Morris.
