NOW: Milwaukee Celebrates New Year’s Eve with The Harlem Globetrotters

MILWAUKEE - It was a Milwaukee New Year's tradition. Some people celebrated with party hats and noisemakers, others with the Globetrotters.

The Harlem Globetrotters entertained crowds at the BMO Harris Bradley Center this weekend. They're known for their crazy shots and tricks. The team stops by Milwaukee each year for two performances. Everyone we talked to said it's a great place to take the kids.

One of them told us he'd seen the Globetrotters on Youtube and couldn't wait to see them in person.

"He went on the largest building and he shot the ball down the building and made it. It was a large building and he made it and I was just surprised about it," said 9-year-old fan Tyler Owens.

"This year we were able to bring our youngest, a four-year-old, and so it was something we could do with our entire family on New Year's Eve and spend the time together with our family and enjoy the team and watching them," said parent Jackie Vincent.

The Harlem Globetrotters broke nine Guinness World Records in 2016. They say they are looking forward to 2017.
