Harlem Globetrotters


Flight Time with Kendyl Rae and Gavin Andrew

By Angela Ash

The Harlem Globetrotters dribbled, dunked, and laughed their way to the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky... amidst a crowd of supremely excited onlookers. 

In these days, it truly is difficult to find something that will keep the entire family entertained.  It is especially hard to capture the attention of multiple generations, but the Harlem Globetrotters have executed this with an amazing simplicity.  Basketball is spectacularly represented with a full game, with the Globetrotters using their almost crazy athletic abilities to leap into the air and pass, slip, and slide across the court to the roar of the fans. 


But the action doesn't stop there! At any moment, someone may pull members of the crowd onto the floor for a shooting contest, or to sing and dance to "YMCA".  Expect anything!

So of course this is obviously a "slam dunk" for guys, but if you were worried about the females keeping interest, Tammy Brawner captivates everyone with her unique presence and basketball skills, often paying a bit more attention to her girls in the audience.

And after the game, everyone is given the opportunity to meet the team, which is an added bonus that is rarely offered at such entertainment events.

If you have never experienced the Harlem Globetrotters, then you have missed a night of comedy, gravity-defying feats, and all-around fantastic family entertainment.  Make sure to get your tickets and be ready for the action!
