The Charlotte Knights already knew how to turn their Trust Field into a beautiful holiday winter land, which they have done the past two years. Now they are upping the level of fun! This year’s “Light the Knights” festival in the picturesque Uptown baseball stadium will feature a snow tubing slope in left field, and regulation sized ice rink on the field, where the will also now serve food and beverages.
Before the field was simply lined with lights and used as a beautiful backdrop for photos. Most of the interactive booths and food and beverages were set up along the concourse at the stadium. Now the action will be located throughout the stadium and field.
For more on what to expect, here is how the Knights staff explains it:
Changes to Light the Knights Festival
“Light the Knights Festival” will take the Queen City by (snow)storm as the Knights will be installing an regulation size ice rink and snow tubing slope in the outfield for all to enjoy this year. The entire event, which will also feature holiday lights, live entertainment, on-field concessions, gift vendors, Santa and more, will run from Wednesday, November 23 through Sunday, January 8.
“Since launching Light the Knights during the winter of 2020, Truist Field has been a special place to celebrate the holidays in Uptown,” stated Dan Rajkowski, Charlotte Knights Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “As our ballpark continues to become a destination to visit each winter, we are very pleased to add many great enhancements to increase the overall experience. We hope to attract people of all ages as our yearly festival continues to grow.”
On the ice rink, the Knights will host public skating for fans and are preparing to attract youth/adult hockey players, figure skaters and much more. All fans will also be able to enjoy the new six-lane snow tubing slope in left field.
