Utica, NY - The Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating 90-plus years with a world tour and made a stop in Utica.  

The Globetrotters are the greatest family-friendly basketball event around, featuring some of the world's greatest dunkers, ball-handlers and Guinness world-record holders.

The Globetrotters have been performing in Utica since 1960 and have become a staple of entertainment at Adirondack Bank Center.

Throughout their history, the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame Globetrotters have performed in 123 countries on six continents, entertaining hundreds of millions of fans and providing some fans with their first basketball experience.

A roster full of men and women will put on a show for fans which will include high-flying dunks and out of this world stunts.
Globetrotter team member Money Merriweather touched on the impact that the organization has on their young fans stating,

“It's a positive impact you know, kids always come to our games and leave with some type of inspiration to be a basketball player or it might not have anything to do with sports. It just gives them hope and their dreams, to never stop believing.”

VIP ticket holders were able to sit on the bench next to Globetrotter team members, interact with players and go home with official team jerseys.
