Holidazzle Has A Warm, Holiday Feeling Fueled By CenterPoint Energy


CenterPoint Energy has long been committed to help keeping your homes warm. For 145 years, they’ve provided safe, reliable natural gasóan important element of a Minnesota winter.

And for the third straight year, CenterPoint Energy will be doing the same through a warming tent at Holidazzle.

Throughout this year’s event, CenterPoint Energy will be keeping you cozy in the skating rink’s Warming House, Fulton Beer Garden and Holidazzle Shops tent. As a company that values its customers and its community, CenterPoint Energy is excited about the opportunity to give back and help create an extraordinary experience for Holidazzle-goers throughout November and December.

“The most enjoyable part of participating in Holidazzle and sponsoring the events is seeing members of the community and our employees come together and celebrate the beautiful downtown city of Minneapolis,” said Becca Virden, Manager of Public Relations for CenterPoint Energy. “The company feels privileged to be part of the city of Minneapolis’ largest winter celebration each year in a home to a great community of people. Our employees are proud to live, work and volunteer in the communities that the company serves every day, and the Holidazzle reminds us that this is a special time each year that allows us to give back to the community.”

This year’s Holidazzle runs Thursdays through Sundays from Friday, November 23 through Sunday, December 23. It will be open on Thursdays from 5 pm-9 pm, Fridays from 5 pm-10 pm, Saturdays from 11 am-10 pm and Sundays from 11 am-9 pm. It’s a winter wonderland located in Loring Park.

CenterPoint Energy will ensure that whether you’re looking to take a break from your time on the ice or if you’re looking for a heated spot to warm up during all the fun and festivities, there will be a place for you to go throughout your Holidazzle experience.

For CenterPoint Energy, it’s exciting to be part of the fun.

“Holidazzle is a tradition, and it is a go-to destination for all Minnesotans and visitors to our state,” Virden said. “It is where attendees can experience a lot of fun, safe activities that they can share and enjoy together during the holiday season.”

When it comes to giving back, this is a year-round venture for CenterPoint Energy. They’ve been recognized for their efforts in being the community-minded company in its industry through The Civic 50, an annual initiative that identifies and recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities in which they do business.

Virden said the connection between CenterPoint Energy, giving back to the community and Holidazzle makes great sense. She said being able to share the experience with one another makes for a stronger community and offers a chance to showcase the benefits of using natural gas as well as how to use it safely.

It ensures those who attend Holidazzle will feel the warmth of the holiday while also, if need be, enjoying the warmth of a heated on-site tent.

“To celebrate Minneapolis and the people who live in it,” Virden said, “CenterPoint Energy is pleased to be able to be a participating sponsor of one of Minneapolis’ largest winter festivities, which will provide safe, quality entertainment for all.”
