Yo Gabba Gabba: There's A Party In My City!

My family was lucky enough to receive tickets to Yo Gabba Gabba Live in our area at Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, NC. We had an amazing time from beginning to end!

Cooper loves watching Yo Gabba Gabba on TV, so I knew this was going to be a huge thing for him. He had no idea what he was in for! When I say he was excited, that is an understatement. Cooper danced and sang along the entire time. He had a blast!

The show was full of dancing, singing and playing. There were bubbles and confetti... and balloons even fell from the ceiling! I was very impressed at all of the interactive things that this show had to offer.

The live show was just like a longer version of the show that you watch on television. It included the Super Music Friend Show and Biz's Beat of the Day. And let me tell you, you should have seen the parents go wild when Biz Markie appeared on stage! He called up children from the audience to repeat a beat that he taught them. It was really funny to hear the kids all trying to copy the sounds that he made.

At the end of the show when the crew sang the "Good-bye" song, Cooper actually started to cry and told me that he didn't want to say good-bye! I explained to him that we can still watch the show at home on TV, and that cheered him up enough to get him to sing the last part of the song along with them.

All in all, we had an amazing time! I definitely plan to take Cooper again the next time they come to our area.

I received free tickets to this event in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed here are 100% mine, and were in no way influenced by the company.

I took my daughter to see this here in Winnipeg and we loved it! The audience had the same reaction to Biz Markie - all the parents were going nuts. There was a father beside me with his 2 young kids, and I had to laugh, he was BEGGING them to go line up and meet Biz. They didn't want to, lol. My 2 year old daughter had the same reaction when it was time to say goodbye - she was shouting "Noooo! Back!!!" :) A fun experience, for sure. Glad you had fun!
