Chipmunks Make Young Arena Debut

By WBH, 01/08/18, 11:15AM CST


Presented by U.S. Bank on Sunday

For decades, Simon, Theodore, and especially Alvin have been party animals.  This Sunday they come to Party Town for the first time when U.S. Bank presents The Chipmunks during the Waterloo Black Hawks’ 3:05 p.m. game against the Omaha Lancers.

Stars of movies, television shows, and hit records, The Chipmunks have been a hit since topping the charts with their well-known Christmas song in 1958.  A new generation of fans has been reintroduced to The Chipmunks in CG through a series of hit movies in the last decade.

“We’re looking ahead to a squaktastic Sunday with fun for the entire family,” said Black Hawks Vice President of Sales and Marketing Joe Greene.  “I would like to send special thanks to U.S. Bank, our partner in bringing fun characters and family entertainment to Black Hawks games each winter for many years.”

Fans will have the opportunity to meet Alvin, Simon, and Theodore for pictures on the Young Arena concourse throughout the game against the Lancers.

With a Monday holiday for most kids and many parents, a Sunday afternoon hockey game offers the perfect mid-weekend highlight.  The game will feature additional family-themed activities and specials.  All afternoon, select concession items, including cotton candy, mini doughnuts, and ice cream will be available at concession stands.

Then after the Hawks and Lancers leave the ice, fans will have the chance to strap on their skates for a free postgame skating session with select Waterloo players.  Skates are required, with limited quantities available for use from the arena.  The remainder of the team will be signing autographs off the ice.

For tickets to Sunday’s game and all other Black Hawks games at Young Arena during the 2017/18 schedule, visit or call the Domino’s Black Hawks Box Office at (319) 291-7680.
