At their home rink inside the Allen Event Center, our local hockey team doesn’t just bring their A-game to the ice; they also bring it to their fans with unique themes, special events, and community involvement. These activities are never more enjoyable than when the holiday season rolls around.
Over the next few weeks, the Allen Americans will host several fun games that the whole family can enjoy. Take your out-of-town relatives to an event to show them just how festive a hockey game can be. From dinosaurs to Santa Claus and his reindeer, here are the top themed nights you won’t want to miss during November and December.
Friday, November 30 - Jurassic Arena Night
When the Allen Americans play the Wichita Thunder, the entire arena will take on a prehistoric atmosphere. There will be a dinosaur costume contest, special autograph opportunities and even Jurassic Park vehicles on display. The photo ops are endless, and any young dino-lover will have a blast cheering on hockey players and the occasional T-Rex.
Saturday, December 1 - Nickelodeon Night (featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
Presented by Tim Jackson Custom Homes and Children’s Health Teddy Bear Toss, this game offers fans the chance to meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as support a great cause. Stuffed animals will be thrown onto the ice, then donated to surrounding hospitals to spread some Christmas spirit to those in need. The Americans will be battling the Wichita Thunder again, but this time they’ll be wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles jerseys.
Friday, December 21 - DC Comics Night
Adults and children alike will have the chance to meet their favorite superheroes at this one-of-a-kind game. While the Allen Americans strive for victory on the ice against the Cincinnati Cyclones, fans can participate in a superhero-themed costume contest and grab autographs from players. It’s an event the whole family will want to participate in.
Saturday, December 22 - Christmas/Seinfeld Night
When the family’s together, why not take them to a game that’s both seasonal and hilarious? Fans will be adorned in their ugliest Christmas sweaters, and even the players will be wearing ugly Christmas jerseys. Plus, there will be photo ops with Santa Claus and a real reindeer. It’s safe to say that spending the weekend before Christmas with the Allen Americans is one of the best ways to ring in the holiday.
