Since the Globetrotters began they have played more than 26,000 exhibition games in 122 countries and territories. Those in attendance had the opportunity to purchase Harlem Globetrotter merchandise, try to catch one of the t-shirts being shot out of a cannon by Globetrotter’s mascot, Globie, and enjoy a variety of different food options.

The action-packed show provided the audience with laughter and amazement at the way the Globetrotters performed. Certain fans from the audience were even brought onto the court to participate in the game time shenanigans providing them with unforgettable memories.

Following the game, fans were able to head down to the court to grab some autographs and interact with the Globetrotters themselves. Overall, the community seemed to really enjoy a night out of the house where they were able to enjoy some harmless comedy with their families and friends.
