Electricity provider Reliant is the official sponsor of the City of Rockport’s annual Tropical Christmas event, the first time in the event’s 14-year history that funding has come from an outside source.

Reliant participated in the event last year, hosting an information booth and providing lighted Santa hats. The company has also been involved in the City’s hurricane recovery efforts having underwritten the construction of a new gazebo at Compass Rose Park.

Among the new offerings this year:
  • Live entertainment throughout the day (noon – 6pm) the Festival Grounds and downtown Rockport
  • Transportation between the Festival Grounds and downtown via the City’s new trolley
  • Snow play area for children offering sledding
  • Illuminated night parade is now at Rockport Beach Park, which provides greater accessibility and parking
  • A concert by the Scott Taylor Band following the fireworks
