Thank you so much to the Harlem Globetrotters and US Family Guide for providing me with tickets to enjoy one of the Cincinnati shows. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I attended the second Harlem Globetrotters show on Saturday, December 28 (there was a 2 p.m. and a 7 p.m.) in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This was my first time seeing the Harlem Globetrotters and it was such a fun event. I went with my mom, niece, and nephew, and we all had a really good time. While there is technically a basketball game being “played” – Harlem Globetrotters vs. Washington Generals – it’s full of fun tricks, dancing, and a lot of theatrical moments.
One of the things that I LOVED is that one of the Globetrotters is a woman. Does anyone else generally picture guys when it comes to the Harlem Globetrotters? Well, I did, and I was really excited to realize that while the rest of the team were men, there was one female and she was just as awesome. I loved all the tricks – throwing from far away, throwing with their back to the net, and much more. No, they don’t always make the basket – it’s not magic – but they do most of the time, and it’s easy to see how talented they all are.
Along with the “game”, there were lots of fun antics and amusing moments. I personally enjoyed the players’ dance moves! During halftime, they even had some local groups come out and perform – there was a tae kwon do group, a dance group, and then another dance group that performed twice. All of them were amazing and it was fun to see local talent showing off their skills!
One of the things that my niece and nephew LOVED about the show is Big G, the giant inflatable mascot. There’s another mascot too, but this one (because of the costume they’re wearing) was able to do all sorts of cool dance moves. He was funny, and a definite highlight for all of us!
I could go on and on about the night, but it’s fun to be surprised with some things, so really, if you can get to a show, I do recommend! It’s a little less than two hours long, and it’s fun for the whole family – whether you normally watch basketball or not.
