Since the 1920s, February vacation week in Maine has featured high school basketball tournaments.

Tourney Week 2015 has begun with Eastern Maine Class A teams playing at the Augusta Civic Center and B, C and D teams playing at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. In Western Maine, action is taking place at the Portland Expo and the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland.

Fans come from all over the state to watch their favorite teams play at these locations. They eat at local restaurants, stay at local hotels and shop at local stores while following the exploits of their favorite teams.

The Bangor Daily News has proudly covered these games for decades. We hope you enjoy some of the moments our photographers have captured through the years.
