Harlem Globetrotters Comes to the Twin Cities! | Stacie Raye

Harlem Globetrotters Comes to the Twin Cities!

A couple of weeks ago, I took my family to see the Globetrotters for the first time thanks to
US Family Guide.  I had always wanted to go, ever since my kids were young but just never got the chance.


When I was younger, I remember seeing commercials that the Globetrotters we're coming to town and I always wanted to go. Well this year, would be our first opportunity to see them in all of their the Globetrotter glory. We headed to the Target Center and couldn't wait to be a part of the fun.


Initially when we arrived, our tickets would not work. It turns out, that the tickets we received were for the next night because of a mix-up. The ticket box office graciously accommodated us and gave us tickets for that night's show. Our seats ended up being about further back, but they were still very good ones. Just two rows from the floor. The seats we should have got would have been almost court side, but I'm glad they weren't. You'll see why soon.




We were ready for some globetrotter entertainment. Let the show begin! 



Making fun of the Ref.



This guy was the star of the show!



Harlem Globetrotter shenanigans.



I had no idea there was a female Harlem Globetrotter! She was good too!



Globetrotter side show. I don't know why, but these things are so funny to me!



Harlem Globetrotter Handles shaking up Twin Cities Live host Steve Patterson. Ooh!




Remember those seats I told you about? Well, this would have been us ducking for cover. 
The Lord knows and was looking out!




My favorite part of the evening was when Handles picked out a guy from the audience and starting dancing with him to Adele's Hello. 



Hilarious!


We definitely enjoyed ourselves and I wish we hadn't have waited so long to see them. Next year, I'll take the girls!


Have you seen the Harlem Globetrotters before?

  1. The Harlem Globetrotters are so much fun. I've seen them several times and it was always a great time. I can't wait for my kids to get older so I can take them. The female trotter is the BOMB!

  2. I remember going to see them when I was little! My children haven't been. I wonder what they would think. I watched a documentary on them, and I would love to share their history with the kids before we go. Looks like it is still as much fun as I remember :)

  4. When I was a kid my dad watched them on tv religiously. They were his favorite so I would watch with him. I haven't been able to watch them since he passed, but s just thinking recently that I would really like to take the children so they can experience something their grandfather enjoyed before they were born. I'm really not this person, but I prefer them being all male. I'm sure the female is good, but I'd like the original vibe. I'm glad you guys stayed dry. Lol! So cool of a family event.

    1. I get it. I think having a female was a nice message, but the whole crew wasn't as good as the originals. At least that's what my hubby said. lol

  11. I've never seen the Harlem Globetrotters before but I remember the commercials and chatter about going as a little girl. I'm cracking up over the seats. We were in the 2nd row at the Universoul Circus... too close to elephants and zebras for comfort, lol.

  13. Every year that they come to Delaware I make plans in my mind to go, however, have never yet. Their games are so entertaining, glad you had a chance to see them live and in person - perhaps it will be me next year! #ProductReviewParty

  14. I never seen the Harlem Globetrotters, unsure if my girls would want to go, but I would like to see them. Seems like their games are very entertaining. Glad you wasn't up front and got wet, I would've been mad if that was me getting wet. #ProductReviewParty
