I still remember the first time my parents took my brothers and I to see The Harlem Globetrotters® when I was a child. Even though I wasn't into basketball as much as my brothers were, I had so much fun watching all the ball tricks from these talented Globetrotters. And, I was even brought out onto the court with my middle brother, where we were taught how to spin a ball on our finger. It was so cool! And, now that I have children of my own, I can't wait to bring my girls to the upcoming The Harlem Globetrotters® at the DCU Center, where they will get to see the Globetrotters up close and in person, and have a great, just like I did, and so many families who attend these shows annually, have been for years.
This year marks the 89th anniversary of The Harlem Globetrotters® and this basketball artistry. Wow! right? I couldn't believe the Globetrotters have been around that long. But, it goes to show that they are still relevant and make for a great family event to take the whole family to, time and again.
Here is more about the upcoming Harlem Globetrotters 2015 “Washington Generals’ Revenge” Tour, which is making a stop at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA on Friday, March 27th at 7PM.
