Corpus Christi, TX – For the second year, American Bank Center’s Arena transforms into the best winter wonderland in South Texas this week. Coastal Christmas – Powered by Stellar Energy Solutions – opens at 5pm Friday, December 20.

"We’re building this event to be one of the season’s greatest highlight," said American Bank Center General Manager, Matt Blasy. "In just the second year, and thanks to fantastic partnership support from companies like Stellar Energy Solutions and Radiology Associates, we’re already getting great feedback on the unique offerings and attractions that are part of this event." Stellar Energy Solutions has been the naming-rights partner on the event since day one and are already committed to the 2020 event as well. Radiology Associates, a new partner in 2019, is offering folks an opportunity to skate for free as part of their charity component. On Sunday, December 22, anyone who brings a new blanket to donate to the cause will receive a free skating voucher.

When the doors of American Bank Center’s Arena open Friday night, it will begin a 10-day run of holiday family fun. Indoor ice skating, life-sized snow globe, holiday characters, festive décor’, holiday snacks and beverages, a snow slide, kids’ zone and much more awaits visitors. While admission is free to enter the event, there are minimal charges ($5) for skating, the snow slide and skate rentals (if needed).

Party packages are available for groups of 15 or more and with some attractions (snow slide (December 27-29) only and late-night skating (December 21 and 28) as examples) only being offered during portions of the event, fans are encouraged to visit or call 361.826.4700 for the latest event information.
