A Coastal Bend Holiday | Corpus Christi | American Bank Center

There are so many fun things to do this Holiday Season in the Coastal Bend! Thanks to our friends at the American Bank Center, we have scoured the internet and found all of the food, shopping, and family fun events and put them together for you so that you can fill your calendar with memory-making things to do all over the Coastal Bend!

Coastal Christmas returns for its 4th annual event. Bring the whole family and celebrate the season at the best winter wonderland in South Texas. Kids of all ages will enjoy indoor ice skating, family photo ops, holiday characters, holiday refreshments and more!

Coastal Bend Mom Collective
Coastal Bend Mom Collective is a locally focused parenting website written BY Coastal Bend area moms FOR Coastal Bendi area moms. Founded in November 2015 by a Corpus Christi mom, Coastal Bend Mom Collective is quickly becoming the area’s largest parenting resource. Our team of moms and social media influencers are extremely passionate about connecting Coastal Bend moms to products and resources that will make life easier. We also firmly believe that there is no one “right” way to be a mom in the Corpus Christi area and love hearing our readers’ differing perspectives on everything from diapering to discipline. We publish new content 6 days a week, which you can have delivered to your email weekly. On CBMC, you’ll find relevant, timely, and fun information within a positive parenting community. Soon, we’ll be planning regular events and playdates in the greater Corpus Christi area to connect moms and families, so we hope to meet you in person very, very soon!
