Nascar Hall of Fame for the Holiday Win

Holidays at the Hall is a perfect way for the whole family to celebrate the season in Charlotte.

This Hall is decked with thousands of white lights glittering over the plaza and a beautiful Christmas tree towering over the ice skaters, as Holidays at the Hall offers several ways to enjoy and celebrate the season. 

Holiday On Ice

Just because we live in the South, doesn’t mean you’ll never enjoy the fun of tying on a pair of skates for a spin around the ice. It’s one of the QC’s favorite holiday traditions ~ Uptown Charlotte’s outdoor ice rink at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza. The rink is open almost every evening til 10 pm, (daily hours at the link) making it the perfect break from holiday shopping, gift wrapping, and streaming non-stop Christmas movies in front of the tv. Your get-out-of-the-house holiday ticket for a family outing, a romantic date night, a little physical exertion instead of sitting all night.
Skaters (and non-skaters) can have their pictures taken with the giant polar bear, under the tree or in the Ceremonial Garden decorated with thousands of glimmering holiday lights. Everyone can enjoy snacks and hot cocoa from the concessions hut. Admission is $12 for those that bring their own skates and $16 with a skate rental. Now through January 5, 2020.

Breakfast with Santa

The big guy is at the Hall for two days for Breakfast with Santa, on December 21 & 22 this year. This all-inclusive experience features a delectable breakfast, a visit and picture with Santa, crafts and reindeer games plus much more. Plus, each child ticket to Breakfast with Santa includes same-day complimentary admission to the ice rink on the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza, so they can go for a skate after breakfast and you can make a holiday memory you’ll all treasure for years. Tickets are $25 per adult and $22 per child, ages 3 to 12. Children 2 and under are free. Breakfast with Santa has sessions at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m., two days only, 12/21 & 12/22, and you buy your tickets for the specific seating you will attend, link through here.

Sensory Friendly Santa

The NASCAR Hall of Fame is offering a special sensory-friendly event for families living with autism or special needs. Each child will have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus in an atmosphere that is calming and quiet with no loud music or flashing lights. Plus with pre-scheduled Santa times, there is little to no wait. This event also includes crafts and the opportunity to watch a Christmas movie in the High Octane Theater with the lights up and the sound down. Magical Morning takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, December 15, 2020. Tickets are $15 for the whole family, purchase here.
