Globetrotters Rub Shoulders With Erie
Thursday, Jan. 10
Erie is kicking 2019 into high gear with the crowd-favorite Harlem Globetrotters, returning with more mind-bending tricks, antics, and fun-loving humor. On January 10, Erie Insurance Arena will welcome the team to do what they have always done best (ever since the 1920s) — jaw-dropping, knee-slapping entertainment.
This time around, the basketball collective has another trick up their sleeves as they will begin the evening with a pre-game show called "Magic Pass." This 30-minute segment allows the community to share the court with the players learning new and old moves, taking shots, snapping pictures and grabbing autographs. The presentation provides a glimpse into the world of the Globetrotters and a chance to have a personal experience with the Harlem stars themselves (it is required to have both a game ticket and Magic Pass prior to entry). Prior to approaching the court, make sure your footwear is soft and rubber-soled to preserve the maintenance of the floor so the star-studded floaters can show off skills that will have you in awe and anticipating their next arrival.
Never mind where the year has gone. Let's all take a look forward to what's ahead. The Globetrotters will definitely do whatever they can to make sure your 2019 is moving in the right direction. Whether you can match them on the court or not, the key is to have a ball (see what I did there?) and leave the arena with something to show and tell. — Charles Brown
