The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters is returning to Southwest Louisiana for one show only. They will be in Lake Charles in April to bring smiles to your kid's faces and entertain your entire family.

The Harlem Globetrotters were founded back in 1926 or 97 years ago. They are an exhibition baseball team that has entertained audiences for almost a century. Since they were founded, they have played more than 26,000 exhibition games in 124 countries and territories.

According to the website and promoters,

The World-Famous Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their tour to Lake Charles. This is a basketball event, like no other. Ankle-breaking moves, jaw-dropping swag, and rim-rattling dunks are only some of the thrill you can expect from this show. Part street ball from the players who defined it, part interactive family entertainment, the tour will show off the best of the globetrotters in a dazzling exhibition of talent and game.
