The World-Famous Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their antics back to Penticton in 2016

They’re coming back.

The Harlem Globetrotters are returning to Penticton and preparing for their most epic tour in history, as the world famous team celebrates its 90th anniversary world tour, with over 320 games in North America alone. They visited Penticton in 2013 to bring awareness about anti-bullying.

A star-studded roster will have fans on the edge of their seats to witness the ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that thrills fans of all ages. The Globetrotters will tip off their historic 90th year of smiles, sportsmanship and service in the fall of 2015 and make a fun-filled stop at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Feb. 29, 2016.

Before the game, take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience with your family where you get to spend time on the court with the Globetrotters one-on-one – shooting, trying out ball tricks, autographs and photos. The unique 30-minute pre-show, “Magic Pass” will create memories of a lifetime.#  After every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.**
