Ducks and The Market Place Team Up to “Duck The Halls”

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks will kick off the holiday season with three specially designed holiday trees at The Market Place in Tustin, CA. Shoppers, families and friends are invited to join in on the festivities and check out the trees decorated by the Ducks team, Ducks fans and the Ducks mascot, Wild Wing himself.

The “DUCK the Halls” merriment begins Thursday, Nov. 20 with an Anaheim Ducks Watch Party from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Former Anaheim Duck Teemu Selanne will be on hand to help “DUCK the Halls” at The Market Place and watch the evening’s game against the Vancouver Canucks live on a giant screen in the Edwards Theater parking lot. Selanne will be joined by Wild Wing, along with the Ducks Street Team and Power Players for meet and greets, giveaways and games with attendees. Pre-game festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. and the puck drops at 7:00 p.m.

“We are thrilled to bring O.C.’s favorite hockey team to The Market Place this holiday season,” said Stacie Ellis, senior director of marketing for Irvine Company Retail Properties. “This is the first time the Anaheim Ducks will join us for the holidays and we can’t wait for our guests to have some extra special holiday fun with the team.”

Families can enjoy the three, 35-foot trees that will twinkle to life for the holiday season. Inspired by the Ducks team, the three trees will each capture a separate element of the local hockey favorites: The Market Place will debut a Fan Tree, a Team Tree and a Wild Wing Tree complete with thousands of custom ornaments themed specifically for the Ducks and a one-of-a-kind, three-foot-tall glowing Wild Wing-inspired tree topper. Each weekend, from Nov. 29 – Dec. 20, guests will be invited to enjoy strolling entertainment and special holiday activities for kids from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. In addition, a Ducks-inspired photo backdrop, designed to look like you’re sitting on the bench with the Ducks players during a game, offers families a great way to capture the “DUCK the Halls” fun. There will also be weekly giveaways stationed by the three holiday trees for amazing prizes including family four-packs of tickets to a Ducks game and a $500 The Market Place gift card. Families can enjoy the holiday trees though Jan. 4, 2015.
