PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The annual Allegheny County Marbles Tournament begins today at the Allegheny County Courthouse courtyard in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Organizers say 125 marble players, also called “mibsters,” are set to take part in the tournament that runs through June 2. The competitors are 14-years-old and younger.

They qualify by competing in local matches that started on March 26.
