A few months back, I shared on the blog that the Harlem Globetrotters 2024 World Tour presented by Jersey Mike's was coming to the State Farm Center at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois and we were excited to be able to go again!
Only this time, family obligations were high, so instead of a family night out, the evening turned into a Girls' Night Out! Thank you US Family Guide and the Harlem Globetrotters for such a fun night with such lively music.
Arrival took place in enough time to grab some concessions and get seated before the game started - which was certainly a plus.
The fun part of the girls’ night was that not everyone had been or had knowledge of the Harlem Globetrotters. So, if you are unfamiliar with the Harlem Globetrotters, they are an American exhibition basketball team that showcases their incredible ball-handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy, and unequaled fan interaction!
In fact, last year in 2023, they had their first Globetrotter, Dazzle Kido? from Poland performing. He is the first Globetrotter ever to be discovered at one of the team's pre-game Magic Pass events. How interesting is that?
Another fun part of the evening was when the Globetrotters began with their water tricks and began heading toward the audience. Of course, a group of laughing girls would be the target. Who would have thought that bucket wasn’t filled with water, but with confetti? Haha!
To add to the entertainment, there was a baby crawling race. How adorable!
Going to the Harlem Globetrotters game each year has become a family tradition for the boys and me. We always have such a fun time when we go, but it was a nice change of pace to make it a girls’ night out. And, as always, Globie and Big G, the mascots are always entertaining.
As the game ended, we decided to leave as the younger crowd headed toward the court for autographs.
Although the plan was to go as a family, I’m happy with the change in tradition. So, if you are thinking about going, why not think about making it a girls’ or even guys’ night out?
If so, below is a discount code from US Family Guide that will save you 20% on tickets, as well as a few tips!
Ensure a Memorable Girls’ Night Out Experience with These Tips
Stay after the game for quick autographs and photo ops with your group and the Globetrotters. But, keep in mind that there is a limited amount of time that the players have to sign autographs, so you will want to move very quickly to avoid being at the end of the lines.
Consider wearing matching colors including a combination of red, blue, and white which match the Harlem Globetrotters team. This easy photo hack ensures that all your photos look well put together and themed. Being prepared made all the difference in the world!
