As a PTPA Blogaholic I was provided with tickets to this event for myself and my family. All views and opinions are as always, 100% my own.
We recently attending an Original Harlem Globetrotters event at the Webster Bank Arena in Connecticut. We took our little boys ages 5 and 7 and it was their first time seeing the Globetrotters. The evening started with a VIP meet and greet with some of the players. This was very exciting and we saw close up how tall Stretch was, he is very tall!
Check out our instagram for more meet and greet photos.
After that we stopped to get food and headed to our seats. The show started and it was filled with all kinds of antics, feats of skill and fun. The Washington Generals were there along with their elderly coach and that whole scenario was the premise for lots of jokes and laughs.
People were pulled out throughout the show and thrust into character themselves. Big Easy was hysterical with his comical interaction with the crowd. Taken a ladies purse, drinking a kids soda, dancing with the husband of the woman who he stole the purse from and so much more.
A wonderful time with the mascots Globe (Globee) and Big G who were a hit with kids and adults alike. When Big G who was full of air kept falling on his face with a splat it was absolutely hilarious.
We had a wonderful time and if the Original Harlem Globetrotters make their way nearby to you during their tour, you should plan to go see them for a night of side-splitting fun on the court. You can go HERE to check dates, locations and purchase tickets.
The boys went home with some loot. We bought them tee shirts and basketballs so they can always remember the first time they saw the Original Harlem Globetrotters. I am sure it won’t be the last time.
