JB Blau, the owner of Dreamland in Oak Bluffs, is throwing a “Champions Rally” tonight to celebrate the Martha’s Vineyard boys basketball team’s glorious ride to the MIAA state semifinal game in the TD Boston Garden.

The team lost to Danvers, 50-47, in a thrilling hard-fought game.

The free event begins at 5 pm at Dreamland in Oak Bluffs located opposite the Flying Horses. The rally, hosted by local sports announcer Ken Goldberg, will include speeches by Coach Joyce and others and a special introduction of the team.

Players will be posing for photos and kids of all ages are welcome, Mr. Blau said.
