Corpus Christi’s first annual Coastal Christmas will bring the sights, sounds and festive fun of the holiday season to the American Bank Center on December 16, 2018 through January 1, 2019. This unique winter festival will be packed with holiday lighting, festive décor, live entertainment, seasonal eateries, and fanciful experiences for both friends and families to enjoy.

Inside of the American Bank Center, there will be a giant Christmas tree, an ice skating rink, multiple winter attractions including The World’s Largest Snowman bounce house, a trackless train, a Toboggan Tunnel, and a giant snow globe guests can step in to. Oh, and did I mention daily visits with Santa Claus and his elves?!
