You know I love Ottawa, and you know I love family fun, and you know I love to give stuff away to my awesome bloggy peeps. I really love it when all three of those things come together! How would you like to win a set of four tickets to see the HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS at the Canadian Tire Centre on April 12?

Harlem Globetrotters Ottawa giveaway

I know, right?! Amazing!

My boys are going to LOVE this show. I remember seeing the Globetrotters live when I was a kid back in London Ontario, and the fun of their show always stayed with me. Plus Simon has been patiently waiting all year for the time to come for tryouts for his school basketball team, which should be any week now. The timing couldn’t be better! (I have to say, I gave a little extra squee when I saw that one of the Globetrotters who will be visiting is the awesome Big Easy Lofton who also starred in the Amazing Race 15!)

Here’s the official description of the event: The world famous Harlem Globetrotters, featuring some of the greatest athletes and entertainers on the planet, will bring their unrivaled family show to Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday, April 12, at 3 p.m. during the Harlem Globetrotters 2015 Washington Generals’ Revenge Tour.

The Globetrotters will face a great challenge this year, as the infamous Washington Generals are more determined than ever to match the franchise’s historic last victory over the Globetrotters nearly half a century ago. It has been five years since the Globetrotters and Generals have faced off, as the Generals have been searching far and wide for the best players to retool their roster and have been preparing for one thing, a victory over the Globetrotters.

With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Firefly Fisher and Moose Weekes – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment. With incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction, this must-see event is guaranteed to entertain the whole family.

We love the Globetrotters too! They always put on a great show, and my middle kid in particular loves basketball and there aren’t many opportunities to see it in Ottawa. But in general I’d say we mostly watch football (watch – we aren’t too sporty as a family, unfortunately!).

We love basketball!! Totally immersed in March Madness now. It would be awesome to see the Globetrotters 🙂

I adore the Harlem Globetrotters but simply could not justify the admission price. Please pick me!

Oops, didn’t see the bit about the favourite sport. I love to play and watch soccer but also love watching my dd play basketball with her long strides and easy lay-ups.

5 Shannon March 29, 2015 at 3:42 pm

I would have to say I like watching soccer the best.

I love watching soccer and rugby. Love playing both of them as well. And of course anything Olympic! I don’t mind hockey either. I used to go see all of the Expos games. Now I find baseball so tedious and boring.

7 Sherri March 30, 2015 at 8:46 am

Love watching my girls play hockey but they would be thrilled to go to this show!

hmmm, I can’t seem to get the raffle copter to work. I thought it might be work access, but I can’t get it working on my BB either. 🙁

9 Liz March 31, 2015 at 10:46 am

My favourite sport to watch is gymnastics!

I tweeted too, but rafflecopter isn’t letting me put in the tweet URL…..

We are a soccer house – all kinds of leagues and international tournaments. I have never seen the Globetrotters, but think my two would think it is amazing. If nothing else, I will enjoy it!
