"Magical Memories" With the Harlem Globetrotters

The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are embarking on a brand new season...their 84th to be exact! The U.S. “Magical Memories” tour runs from December 26th to May 2nd and includes all of the fun-filled, family entertainment that the Globetrotters are known and loved for:



There are 216 cities included, and the Globetrotters will take on their arch-rivals the Washington Generals at each stop. Fans of The Amazing Race will be happy to know that you can see both Flight Time and Big Easy perform on the tour (my kids LOVE them and they were our favorite team on the reality show).

To help kick off "Magical Memories," I have a fabulous giveaway and coupon offer for you!

Visit HarlemGlobetrotters.com to locate a game in your area. When you're ready to purchase your tickets, enter the promotional code HGMOM to get a $7 discount for each ticket purchased*. Ticket prices do vary slightly at the various arenas, but they typically average $25 each, thus allowing a family of four to save $28 in total.

Did you know that kids can send email fan letters through the site as well, which Globetrotters players personally respond to?! How fun is that?! You can also check out Globetrotter history, photos and news while you're there.

On to the giveaway! Thanks to Coyne Public Relations, I have an exciting prize pack to give to one lucky reader that includes a Harlem Globetrotter mini-basketball, authentic Globetrotter wristbands, an autographed Harlem Globetrotter team photo and a 2010 game program!

I love that they have so much fun and are so goofy playing basketball! It helps to teach my son that sports are about fun.

MY magical moment of Harlem Globe Basketball was being around 8 years old and going to one of their games against the Pistions. I am 52 years old now, so that was a long time ago-

My most magical memory was taking my brother to a HGT game for the first time when he was little. It's a family tradition now!

My most magical memory is when my youngest son won tickets for the 4 of us to go see the Harlem Globetrotters in Anaheim at the Arrowhead Pond and me and my son we were laughing so hard and loud that people were looking at us like we were strange. All the tricks the Globetrotters were very funny, especially the tricks they played on the other team.

I remember hearing about them when I was a little kid (I'm 53 now) and didn't know what it was all about. Then I saw them on tv and saw they are really great basketball players and are so talented! My twin sons would love this prize!

My magical memory is while growing up in the 70's they made basketball more interesting and fun and made you want to play too.
