CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Dec. 12, 2016) – The NASCAR Hall of Fame is gearing up for the season with a full lineup of adrenaline-pumping adventures and one-of-a-kind gift ideas during Holidays at the Hall through Jan. 8.

HOLIDAY ON ICE
Through Sunday, Jan. 8
Charlotte’s outdoor ice rink is located on the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza. Perfect for families, date nights or fun outings with friends, Holiday on Ice has become a beloved tradition in Charlotte. Skaters and non-skaters will all want to have their pictures taken with our giant polar bear or under the 39-foot-tall tree! Admission is $10 if you bring your own skates and $14 with skate rentals.
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
Saturday, Dec. 17
Santa Claus is coming to town, and he's making a pit stop at the NASCAR Hall of Fame for the second annual Breakfast with Santa. The NASCAR Hall of Fame lights up with holiday excitement on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 8 to 11 a.m. This all-inclusive experience includes a delectable breakfast, an opportunity to create a collectible ornament, a visit and picture with Santa, plus so much more. New this year, children will be able to go outside and skate on the ice rink after festivities inside the NASCAR Hall of Fame
UNDECK THE HALL
Monday, Dec. 26
St. Nick may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the gift giving is over! Join us the morning after Christmas as we "UnDeck" the Hall. Fans are each permitted to select a gift off of one of the many trees decorated with NASCAR-themed items, like autographed souvenirs, die-cast cars, race tickets, apparel and gear, sheet metal and more. Each year we have secret surprises hidden on the trees, and 2016 will be no exception. Guests who join or renew their NASCAR Hall of Fame memberships during the event get to pick a second item off the exclusive members-only tree. Doors open at 10 a.m., and the fun continues until all of the gifts are gone. Each year a line forms early in the morning outside the Hall, so fans are encouraged to arrive early for the best selection. The event is free with paid admission to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

'Tis the season to buy gifts for fellow NASCAR Fans. Wrap up something nice from our Gear Shop or splurge on tickets to the Class of 2017 Induction Ceremony. Better yet, give the gift of NASCAR all year long with a membership to the Hall.
