Last Friday was our mother son date night at the Harlem Globetrotters! We had originally planned on three moms and sons but one mom couldn’t make it. Two of us headed up with three excited kids. I will tell you, the hour car ride up to the game was a challenge with our crazy boys in the back. There was a brief second where I thought of dropping them off somewhere in Hartford where they couldn’t find their way home…I said a BRIEF second, don’t judge me!
Once we got there we sat down we didn’t have to wait long for some music to come on and dancers started getting the crowd pumped up! The dancers were honestly amazing. I love stuff like that. The Harlem Globetrotters came out and all have some great moves during their warm ups. I couple of times I heard our boys says, “Wowwwwww!” Since they are all on the same basketball team in middle school, they know how hard it is to handle a basketball like that.
The game itself was fun too. Our boys are old enough to know some of it was orchestrated and knew the Globetrotters would win but the whole performance is geared toward keeping the kids involved in everything that was going on in the court. The Globetrotters are definitely trained to make this an experience for kids and families.
The word I think I would use to describe the experience is wholesome. It’s not a word I use a lot but a Harlem Globetrotters game is so family friendly for kids of all ages that “wholesome” is the perfect word for it.
One of the things that surprised me is how young some of the kids were that came. I had actually been waiting to take my son when he was a little older but this game is something that would be for any kid of any age. I even spotted some little girls that were in their princess outfits enjoying it as much as the sports-oriented girls. So it is an event for kids of all interests and types. A Harlem Globetrotters game is much more about kids, family and fun than it is about sports. There is definitely something for everyone and I would recommend it for any family to put on their bucket list to at least do once. Every kid should be able to say they’ve seen the Harlem Globetrotters!
