Series of monthly themed public events kicks off in May; normal mall hours return June 1

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (May 21, 2021) – It’s time to shop, dine and play again as La Palmera prepares to launch a months-long celebration marking the return to normal, including regular mall operating hours.

Party Under the Palms features a free, themed event each month through October, kicking off with “Pachanga” on Thursday, May 27, in the La Palmera Cafes food court from 6–8 p.m.

In addition to live mariachi music, Pachanga guests can participate in a Grito contest for a chance to win a $50 La Palmera Gift Card, pre-register to play Corpus Christi Loteria for a chance to win a $100 La Palmera Gift Card (three games, limited seating), and enjoy cerveza samples from L&F Distributing (guests 21 and up, while supplies last). There will also be special offers at select stores and restaurants for guests to take advantage of throughout the evening.

“Everyone is ready to get back to some semblance of normal again and at La Palmera, that means lots of activities for our guests,” said Amanda Sanchez, La Palmera general manager. “Party Under the Palms is our way of celebrating being able to spend time together once again with fun and uniquely themed events each and every month.

“And although the mall has stayed quite busy since reopening after the temporary pandemic shut down in 2020, we are ready to return to our regular operating hours. It’s full speed ahead from here on out.”

Beginning Tuesday, June 1, mall operating hours will be Monday–Friday from 10 a.m.–9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.– 6 p.m. with mall doors opening at 7 a.m. each day for mall walkers.
