In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

The Harlem Globetrotters are in town

The Original Harlem Globetrotters are playing at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson.

This fantastic event for the whole family will be on Friday, December 7th at 7:00pm.

A star studded roster will have you on their edge of your seat. Witness the ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry and one-of-a-kind family entertainment. See some of the most elite dunkers on the planet. A Globetrotters game is more than just basketball – they will bring smiles and cause laughter with their skills and fan interaction. Maybe you will be able to have them place a spinning ball on the tip of your finger. Occasionally, they will take a break from the action with a comedy skit and will leave you in stitches. All of the players have a nickname. For example, there’s Jumpin’ Joe, Hot Shot, Torch, Lights Out, and Big Easy. Tickets are available here.
