The minimum contribution to participate in the festival is just $10. All players who register will receive a voucher for a FREE ticket to the KIXX home game on December 29th.
7, 8 and 9 year old boys and girls will be playing on Wednesday, December 26th. 10 and 11 year old boys and girls will be playing on Thursday, December 27th. 12 and 13 year old boys and girls will be playing on Friday, December 28th.
