The kids are out of school this week for Spring Break. Are you looking for something fun to do with them? If the answer is yes, then get ready as the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are returning to Southwest Louisiana for only one show this week.

According to the event page,

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.
